Students from Hackettstown High School, and art teacher Julie Wane, are the featured artists at this month’s exhibit at Warren County Community College.
The exhibit runs through the end of December and can be seen during regular college hours. It is free and open to the public. WCCC is located on Route 57 West in Washington Township.
The theme of the exhibit is “Working with Marker and Watercolor.”
According to HHS art teacher and exhibit curator Julie Wane, whose work is also on display, during the first semester of class, Hackettstown High School students in Drawing and Painting classes work with watercolor and marker. The show included animal silhouettes created by the students in the style of Sue Coccia, a commercial stamp artist who draws on indigenous cultural patterns and natural habitats when creating her work. Students experimented with watercolor techniques in the background of their silhouettes.
Also included in the show are student blind contour marker drawings enhanced with watercolor and selected works by Wane, including prints of pieces (originals still on loan) designed for the N.J. D.E.A.’s Heroin Art Exhibit held in the Gateway Gallery in Newark, including this year’s second place winner.
Students in the exhibit are from the Intermediate level Drawing and Painting classes, as well as selected students from other courses.
