The new art show at Carco Theatre features work by the young hands of 13 Sierra Heights Elementary students.
The art encompasses a variety of mediums, including cloth blanket, tempura, collage, crayon, watercolor, acrylic, even egg yolk and Kool-Aid. The pieces will be exhibited in Carco’s lobby through Aug. 15.
Local artist Doug Kyes helped select the works for the show. Each work is a product of the school’s Art Docent program, in which students study famous artists and their art and then produce their own art.
“It’s just a beautiful show,” Kyes says.
