Last week in the Learning Commons, it was hard to miss the huge display of artwork made by students taking art classes here at La Costa Canyon High School. In this year’s gallery walk, hundreds of pieces of artwork were featured from elective art courses varying from photography, painting, drawing and design, studio art, and sculpture.

“I think the gallery walk is really cool, there are a lot of different classes that got to experiment with it and display their art. Also, I think everyone enjoys looking at it,” sophomore Taylor Evans, an artist featured in the show said.

Though La Costa Canyon High School is constantly recognized for athletics, many students are very passionate about arts, and this is shown through the wide display of talent at the art show last week.

“It was super cool to have stuff up there and have people looking at it. My friends would send me pictures of my art saying how good it is, that felt super good,” sophomore Katie Lewis said about what it felt like being featured in the show.

Many of the artists with work featured in the show had a theme behind their pieces.

“For me, there a lot of wine pieces because I want to study vine culture and winemaking, and there are a lot of chickens, because at my house we have a little farm of chickens, and I think they are super cute,” Evans said.

In Bliss Carroll’s display, a junior taking AP 2D Studio Art, there was quite a different theme behind her paintings. “Second semester we had to pick a concentration of things and ideas that we would do and so half of my pieces are succulents and wildflowers,” Carroll said.

While Evans and Carroll had more of a theme or continuity in their work, Lewis found that her display was a wide array of different types of art.

“I didn’t want to submit my concentration pieces because I liked my breadth pieces a lot better, so mine is kind of like a random mix of everything,” Lewis said.

This year’s gallery walk was a very popular attraction in the Learning Commons, and overall was a way to show off the variety of artistic talent we have here at La Costa Canyon.
