Recently, Mrs. Gina Diaz-Perez’s fifth-grade art students at Kissel Hill Elementary have been studying the life and work of artist and Lancaster native, Charles Demuth. After learning more about him and his art, students were tasked with creating their own paintings inspired by his flower still life paintings. Several students’ paintings were chosen to represent Kissel Hill at the Demuth Museum, located in Lancaster city. Students' work will be on display at the museum from January 28th – February 26, 2023.
The following students’ art was selected:
These students are so excited to have their artwork displayed outside of the school and to represent our district at a museum!
“Opportunities like this are great for students to see how their artwork can have a positive impact on the community we live in.” - Mrs. Gina Diaz-Perez, Art Teacher at Kissel Hill Elementary.
If you’re interested in checking out these beautiful pieces, stop by the Demuth Museum before February 26th. Great job climbers!
