Developing Their Own Style
New Artwork by LAS Students Displayed at Avenue J Art Exhibit
Budding artists at Lander College of Arts and Sciences (LAS) in Flatbush had a chance to display their artwork during the school’s second art exhibition on May 24. The exhibition will be open to the public Sundays in June and on two Sundays in July.
“The goal of the art exhibit is to allow our students to celebrate their hard work in a public space where they can receive feedback and see how their work affects people,” explained Professor Atara Grenadir, chair of the art department. The displayed artwork was completed during several art courses offered by LAS. Students used a variety of materials including graphite, chalk /oil pastel, acrylics and paper and Styrofoam. Many artworks were based upon observation, while others were influenced by artists’ styles or from the students’ imagination.
“Art is a visual language,” stated Grenadir. “The unique personalities and diverse talents of our students come across in their art.”
Several students spoke about their artwork and their creative process.
