Students at North Lakeland School in Manitowish Waters are once again partnering with the Presque Isle Community Library to be the featured Artists of the Month for January 2014.
Artwork will be on display now through Feb. 1 and there will be an artists’ reception Thursday, Jan. 16, 4-6 p.m., hosted by North Lakeland’s chapter of National Junior Honor Society.
A variety of types of artwork will be featured this year, including colored pencil, acrylic paint, cut paper, oil pastel, clay, dioramas, and even some lego creations. Artwork was created by past and current North Lakeland students of all grades, both in Ann-Marie Jensen’s art class and at home in students’ free time.
Students showing work this year are Morgan Frandy, Chris Sly, Sophia Wittig, Carissa Erdmann, Christopher Thoma, Jenna Duranso, Christopher Stowers, Riley Mauzer, Emily Menze, Stephanie Balas, Ben McFarland, Chance Jacobs, Katie Schmidt, Anna Allen, Courtney Psenicka, Cierra Hayman, Mackenzie Crowley, Hunter Greyhair, Abby Parris, Isis Ramirez, Ryan May, Olivia Menzia, Alaina Meier, Cole Schuenemann, Nikko Hess, Axle Jacobs, Cody Behnke, Grayson Johnson, Roman Matusiewicz, Olivia Wise, Callie Johnson, Zach Muenzner, Aden Thiessen, Sarah Poisson, Lauren Gardner, Erin Schmidt, Alexandria Hough, Makaylla Moraczewski, Jenna Whitman, Ivy Delgado, Peyton Towne, Chris Lesavage, Estelle Byrnes, Erik Lenz, Sebastian Wittig, Tyler Garner, Hannah Menzia, Jeannette Albert, Josh Scheffler, Logan Galasel, Ella Schwartz, Maggie Wohlleber, Nataliamae Wiesendanger, and many more.
