Art at Seton always has something interesting going on and for art 1, 2 and 3 it is abstracts. According to art teacher, Margie Metz, the art 1 students are working on an abstract project from an old drawing. They are to take any old drawing and create an abstract design from that. For homework, the girls are currently making wire sculptures. Art 2 students are making surrealism collages which are like an abstract in collage form. Art 3 students are making abstract expressions. Art 4 students are making silk painting and continuing on their senior series. Senior Maria Hartmann who loves art and is in art 4 said “Senior series is a great and expressive way to get your creativity out there on paper and gradually get more in depth with the series you choose.”
In addition to abstract art, and since Celebrate Seton is around the corner, Sunday March 2, 2014, Art 3 students were required to submit an original design for the t-shirt, and other art students could design a shirt for extra credit. Shirts had to be black with neon green and pink. Students entering their design into the contest were to create a t-shirt that represents Seton’s mini festival in a way that would be exciting. All Seton staff and students were asked to vote on the designs. Voting began on Monday, January 27 and was extended to Friday, January 31. At the time of publication, the winner had not yet been determined.
In other art news, six Seton students were selected to be in the scholastic art show starting next week. The Silver Key winners were junior, Abbi Sandmann for photography and junior Brooke Zentmeyer, for drawing. The honorable mentions are juniors Shannon Kaine, Maggie Thiemann and Gab Kraemer all for painting. Also, senior Elora Tonnis is an honorable mention for a sculpture. The show starts Friday, February 7 and ends Friday, February 21 and is held at River Center in Covington, KY. Before the show on February 21 there is an awards show across the street at NKY Convention Center. If you are interested in seeing any of your saint’s art work, head to River Center sometime between February 7 and February 21.
