Art from 2023 LPS students decorates district office

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — On Monday evening, Lincoln Public Schools’ district office was a bustling hub of middle and high school students ready to show off their artwork.

Still portraits, 3D models and stop-motion animation could be seen on every floor of the office, with a different genre around every corner.

The Secondary District Art Show comes less than a month after elementary students showed their unique work.

LPS Arts and Humanities Focus Program teacher Maggie Eisener said the show is a representation of each school’s students.

“There are a few different opportunities for students to show off their work throughout the year, but it’s really nice to bring every school from the district together for one night,” she said.

Eisener said the timing of the show allows students to see how much their skills have grown throughout the school year.

The focus program works with students to craft their life experiences into art.

“Art is an experience,” Eisener said. “It’s a way to process experiences or becomes a means to understand your world.”

Students were able to pick up a certificate of achievement before leaving the show as a representation of their accomplishment.

The artwork will remain in the building till the end of the 2023 calendar year and can be viewed during the office’s public hours: 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.
