Guild assistance leads to SDA student art show

Approximately 30 art students from the San Dieguito Academy Visual Art Department will display their work at the Encinitas Community Center from Oct. 19 through Nov. 23. The student art show will be concurrent with the annual San Dieguito Academy High School Foundation’s fundraising Gala on Nov. 5, which is also held at the Community Center.

Those that come to check out the work — which is viewable during regular business hours Monday through Friday, Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. — will see high-quality frames, which were purchased with funds from the San Dieguito Art Guild.

The nonprofit local art group, hosted their annual Mother’s Day Weekend Art, Garden & Studio Tour last May, with 10 percent of the net proceeds awarded to three students from MiraCosta College and to the Frame Project for San Dieguito Academy High School, Visual Arts. Frames were purchased in different sizes to accommodate different sized art and will be used multiple years.

“Showing the work of our student artists is an important aspect to their growth as visual artists and encourages them to be a part of the vibrant Encinitas art community,” Angela Jackson, SDAHS visual art teacher said in a news release. “We are thankful to the city of Encinitas for this opportunity and to the San Dieguito Art Guild for helping our future artists show their artwork in a professional manner.”
