Lancaster County Public Schools Art Show is this weekend at LMS

Students who completed art in Lancaster public school art classes will have creations on display at the annual Lancaster County Public Schools Art Show April 26-27.

The school will be staged in the Lancaster Middle School (LMS) Gymnasium, 191 School Street, Kilmarnock.

RAL Art Center sponsors the event, volunteer artist-judges provide ribbons and medals and arrange for monthly display space at RAL Art Center, 19 North Main Street, Kilmarnock, reported Lancaster Primary School art teacher Kendra Hunt.

Volunteer artist-judges for this year’s event are Nadine Flood, Michael Stevens and Sallie Dashiell.

Lancaster Schools will bus all primary students and a group of high school students to the show to participate in an awards ceremony, said Hunt. LMS TAG Art students put on an upcycled and recycled materials fashion show led by teaching assistant Rebecca Bell.

Families can be involved and join in the art show fun, said Hunt. Work together to create an edible art entry, anything that is edible that “looks like something else.” For example, edible art is like cupcakes that look like sheep or a forest of broccoli. Cash prizes, sponsored by the PTAs, will be awarded for first, second and third places as well as honorable mentions.

Judges for the edible art show will be Lancaster home-schooled students. Deliver edible art entries to the LMS front lobby by 2:30 p.m. Friday, April 26.

The show will be open to the public on Saturday, April 27. See the transformed gymnasium, the awarded works of art and taste the edible art.

Fun art activities will include mural painting, coloring, solving Tangram puzzles and taking selfies at the “Selfie Spot.”

Edible art will be on display with awards from 9-10 a.m. Beginning at 10 a.m., all are welcome to taste and enjoy the edible creations, said Hunt.
