Beautifully Made Art Show and Auction:
Join us at Beautifully Made Art Show and Auction, an event in which YOUR child is the artist. Showcasing the art of our Placer Academy students, Beautifully Made has been a work in progress by each and every student throughout the school year. Come and see their talent!! Each class will present three separate displays as well as class created art.
Following in the footsteps of Placer Academy’s 2014 rendition of Franz Marc’s The Blue Horse, our PA students will be recreating contemporary artist John Nolan’s Poppy Corner II for this year’s art show, Beautifully Made. This bright and vivid work of art comes to life through the interpretation of little hands across the grades. Each class will have their own rendition of Poppy Corner II, some of which are individual works and others that are group projects.
Up for the live auction our Placer Academy students have put their talents together to create a work of art that you can take home. Ranging from Kandinsky’s circles to a unique and personal quilt, our children have been hard at work demonstrating their talents within the theme of Beautifully Made.
What started out as a school wide project and evolved into an individual class piece has become one of the most admired pieces of art that the students have created. Each child has created a bright water colored heart based on the artist Jim Dine. These hearts have been mounted and framed class by class and are a beautiful example of the individuality of each of our children. These pieces will be auctioned off during the silent auction.
The first annual Harvest Ridge Placer Academy Beautifully Made Art Show and Auction will be held Friday, April 17, 2015. Proceeds from this event will fund art instruction, curriculum and supplies for all Placer Academy Students.
