Visitors admire artwork featuring FCPS student artists from elementary through high school, at the McLean Pyramid Art held at the Emerson Gallery of the McLean Project for the Arts at the McLean Community Center. The show encourages and inspires young artists.
On Saturday, March 19, parents and students flocked to the gallery, eager to find that special piece of art that students would recognize. Artist Adrian Qin, 10, was there, his parents documenting the moment.
When asked how he did his screen print, Adrian replied, “I used a piece of foam. I drew whatever I wanted on it with my pencil. It’s a kangaroo. Then I used the print roller.” Adrian said some of his prints were too bright, while others weren’t bright enough. This was his favorite.
Curator and Creative Director of McLean Projects for Arts, Nancy Sausser, said she was delighted to continue her longstanding partnership with art teachers and student artists in the McLean area. “As always, the work presented by these talented young artists is dynamic, wide-ranging, and breathtakingly imaginative. Many thanks to teachers and students for their hard work and singular creativity,” said Sausser.
The Emerson Gallery is open to visitors Tuesday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Extended gallery hours are March 22, 23, and 24 from 4-7:30 p.m.
