On Saturday, March 19, parents, and students flocked to the gallery, eager to find that special piece of art the students would recognize. Artist Adrian Qin, 10, was there, his parents documenting the moment.
When asked how he made his screen print, Adrian said, "I used a piece of foam. I drew on it what I wanted with my pencil. It's a kangaroo. Then I used the printing roller." Adrian said some of his prints were too bright, while others were not bright enough. This one was his favorite.
McLean Projects for Arts' curator and creative director Nancy Sausser said they are excited to continue their long-standing partnership with McLean area art teachers and student artists. "As always, the work on display by these talented young artists is vibrant, widely varied, and breathtakingly imaginative. Many thanks to teachers and students alike for their hard work and singular creativity," Sausser said.
