Students in Red Lion displayed their works of art at the annual City Arts Gallery Art Show on Friday April 9th, which gave students the chance to display their pieces of art and Red Lion’s talent first hand.
“I think it’s pretty cool that Hopkins does this. It gives students the chance to show off their artwork that they work so hard on,” senior Carley Blanchard said.
One student, senior Miranda Beaver, is very proud of her clock painted with water colors entitled “Beginning to End” which now is currently hanging in the commons.
“I am my biggest critique, never feeling completely satisfied with my finished products. However, I am proud of the pieces that I create, and only wish to get better,” Miranda Beaver said.
Miranda entered four pieces into the show, one being her water color clock. She also entered two ceramic pieces that she has created along with a mosaic of the Red Lion Lion logo made out of just broken CD pieces.
She plans on attending Delaware University for Art Education in the Spring of 2017.
“Whether that be to elementary school kids or high schoolers. It does not matter to me, either would be awesome,” Miranda Beaver said.
Many other students entered their pieces into the show as well. Some of them include senior Hannah Kokta, junior Olivia Riggs, junior Eion McCleary, and junior Zayne Mummert.
“Art is something I will carry with me for the rest of my life,” -Miranda Beaver
