Every La Jolla Elementary student had a work of art showcased in a recent show in the school auditorium. The show, organized by parent Erica Wortham and art teacher Sonja Devine, opened March 30. Many families attended a Thursday night reception with refreshments and a guitarist. The art program at LJES, as at all local public schools, is paid for by parents through school foundations.
In addition to the show at their school, 15 La Jolla Elementary students are having their work displayed at the San Diego Museum of Art later this month. Ten percent of an upcoming student show "Young Art 2011: Making Multiples" at the museum is work done by LJE students. The SDMA student show will be on view April 16 to May 29.
