The Carmel International Arts Festival will take place on Sept. 27 and 28 off of Main St. and Rangeline Rd. It is a street fair and will feature a Young Artists tent to showcase CHS and University High School student work.
Jennifer Davis, Art department chair said that the teachers have not yet submitted their student pieces, but approximately 60 to 70 pieces of student art work will be shown in the tent.

Hannah Lencheck, independent Studio Art student and junior said that being chosen for these opportunities can open doors. “It’s always nice to get to display your work. Every opportunity adds to your total knowledge and experience of the business,” Lencheck said.

Similarly, Davis said it was good for the student to see themselves in the real world of artists. Davis said, “Last year we asked kids with art displayed to man the booth. It gave them a sense of ownership of their pieces. They can also hear comments and then comment back.”

Lenchek said she hopes to be chosen to participate in the fair this year, “I’ll go (to the fair) anyway to see my classmates work, but it would be fun to see my own work displayed for people to see and enjoy.” By Rosemary Boeglin
