Salvage Art ExhibitionPosted by Caryn Horrigan at 5/1/2013Salvage: A Waste of Materials, A Wealth of ArtTwo innovative pieces of recycled art, created in Art with a Heart classes at Lakeland Elementary/Middle School, will be showcased at Salvage: A Waste of Materials, A Wealth of Art exhibition. This juried exhibition is comprised of 30 pieces of art made from recycled materials. We are extremely proud of Cecy, Cesar, Esperanza, and Makala for their ingenuity and resourcefulness. Thank you to Laura Myers, Art with a Heart's teacher at Lakeland, for taking the initiative to submit these works to the competition.The exhibition runs from March 23 to May 18, 2013 at The Baltimore Public Works Museum. Public hours for the exhibition are Fridays and Saturdays, 1:00 to 6:00 pm (with the exception of March 29 and 30). Admission is free.Below are several photos from the opening night exhibition. The theme of the exhibit was using recycled materials to create work with aesthetic value. There are awards of recognition on display in the school lobby showcase.
Inspired by traditional tin folk art of South America, students in Ms. Myers' 7th and 8th grade classes used recycled tin pieces to create intricate flowers and a woven basket on top of a tissue paper/paint background (left). Imitating the work of Dale Chihuly, the students used paint to marbleize recycled soda bottles and attached them together to create a chandelier (right/bottom).

Lakeland MuralPosted by Caryn Horrigan at 11/1/2012Respectful, Responsible, Ready MuralLakeland's 7th and 8th grade students have been working on a new project - a wall mural entitled "RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, and READY." The mural was conceptualized through a collaborative effort among the art department, our school social workers, the PBIS program, and the school's administration. The students began the project by drawing individual 14" x 17" sketches of subway trains with elaborate graffiti-style lettering and graphics to incorporate into the aesthetic composition, emphasizing Lakeland's three "R's". We scaled the train drawings using a 1"=1" grid ratio and drew the blueprint of the train on the wall.Stay tuned as we continue to update you. Check back to see our final product!
