Student artwork on display at City Hall
Students of Redmond High School teacher Sarah De la Cruz’s Advanced 2D Art class have an artwork display at Redmond City Hall through June 13.
The artwork is inspired by the work of Japanese artist Hokusai (1760-1849) and emulates his style by focusing on nature and “ukiyo-e” or everyday life. The works are linoleum block prints.
Works on display were created by Krista Simonson, Brittany Angell, Ian Anderson, Isabel Ridder, Katie Rohrbach, Christina Davison, Sophie Gao, Tyler West and Chanel Cogan.
