LSU Lab School Students Shine at The Real-Life Experience Art Exhibition

artworkIn the heart of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, creativity thrives within the halls of the LSU Lab School. This year, the spotlight shines brightly on a group of 11 talented young artists from the school, as they have been chosen to display their artwork at REAL-LIFE EXPERIENCE Juried High School Exhibition. A panel of professional artists selected the students’ work from a pool of more than 200 pieces submitted by high schoolers throughout East Baton Rouge Parish.

Congratulations to the following students whose work was chosen, Dylan Viguerie, Kennedy Aldridge, Cody Vaughn, Zoe Stein, Julianne Shipp, Barton Phillips, Katelyn Anderson, Mercer Richardson and Henry Hackenberg. Beth Stewart has been two pieces featured in the show. 

The Real-Life Experience Art Exhibition is not just any ordinary showcase; it's a platform where young artists get to share their unique perspectives, stories, and visions with the community. For the students of the LSU Lab School, it's a chance to not only exhibit their talent but also to connect with a wider audience and leave a lasting impression.

The Lab School has a strong visual arts program that begins in elementary school where they learn skills using a process-based approach. In middle school, students who choose to take art build on the skills they have learned and explore different mediums. In high school, students have the opportunity to chose from different experiences including pottery, painting, drawing, sewing and photography.
