Rebecca Talley challenged her  Color Theory class to use the universal language of art to create posters for social justice.  Students used  their individual voices to speak to social change. You can see more of these works in the temporary installation just outside the Art department entrance on the first level of the college complex.

Inside Out: Self portraits based on contemporary graffiti and stencil art

LMC art instructor Judi Pettite took advantage of blank plywood construction walls at the college to exhibit her painting students work. Each piece is a stencil based self portrait on 24 x 24 inch plywood, screwed on to the temporary walls. The work, though inspired by Banksy Shepard and Swoon, reflects each students personal story.



Gabe goes Gothic

This work, by student Gabriel Linares, illustrates an end-of-semester project in Ken Alexander's ART 12: Design Drawing course. The assignment specified that students must design an interior functional space in one or two-point perspective with a human figure for scale. In addition, students were to select an architectural style for the room and its furnishings, in this case, Gothic. Gabe’s work represents a very high level of skill combined with significant research and commitment applied to this very fine drawing.
