Wauneta-Palisade students attend RPAC Art

Wauneta-Palisade art students Hannah Lovell, Madyson Hood, Faith Lemon and Kelsey Allen submitted works for the RPAC Art Contest in Cambridge Jan. 22.
    Their work and other award winning works from the contest were displayed at the Wauneta Attendance Center in late February.
    Each piece of artwork was first judged against the other works from its school by the teachers from the other half of the conference, in WP’s case, the eastern RPAC schools. First place finishers were judged for overall Best of Show.
    Lovell placed first for WP. Second was Lemon, third went to Hood and Allen placed fourth.
    Best of Show was awarded to a Medicine Valley student.
    “This year Hannah Lovell and Madyson Hood have really come a long way in the creative process, creating art, talking about it and learning about it,” art teacher Danny Schluckebier said. “They are seniors this year and will do great things.”
    Schluckebier also credited Lemon, a senior, with creating some really great work and appreciating art more this year.
    Following the RPAC Show, Shluckebier took Lemon and Sarah Christenson to UNK Imagination Day Feb. 26 hosted by the UNK art department and students. It was the second time WP attended the event.
    Schluckebier said it was a day of talking about the hosts’ artwork, tours of artwork on campus and the possibilities if one is interested in anything art related.
    The department also offered different hour-long, hands-on classes taught by the professors for students to learn and just have fun with a professional artist.
    Schluckebier said the experience makes him want to go back to art school to learn more.
    Colby Community College’s  ‘Art On The Oasis’ Show and Gala were held March 6.
    Schluckebier said WP has consistently entered the event.
    “It’s a great college and great art department with a lot of creativity there,” he said. He also enjoys the professional category at the event. Lemon, Hood, Lovell and Katlyn Parrish-Yell have work on display.
    Several more events are still on WP’s calendar.
    Schluckebier expects Parrish-Yell to do well at the Holyoke, Colorado Art Show.
    “It’s great art show put on with the school’s help.”
    The Wray, Colorado, Art Show is also coming up and will be held at the Wray Community Building. To read the full storyy, subscribe to the e-edition online or call the Breeze at 308-394-5389 to subscribe to the print edition.
