European School Art Students Hang Around Heredia
YOU don’t have to be done with high school to get your art on museum walls.
Seven teens in the International Baccalaureate Visual Arts, Design and Sculpture program at the EuropeanSchool are proof of that. They get to show what they’ve created at the House of Culture (La Casa de la Cultura) in Heredia March 22–26.
Christopher Abdey, 18; Gabriel Hara, 18; Andres Jaen Castro, 18; Jason Li, 19; Christopher McCue, 18; Daniel Samper, 18;and Michael Wolfskill, 18 are all participating. Two sculpture students are Costa Rican, as is their teacher, Donald Jiménez, winner of the Second BCT Sculpture Biennale of 2002, a big competition here in Costa Rica.
THE other five young artists hail from North American, Taiwanese and Japanese/German backgrounds.
They’ve all done different things – painting, drawing, assemblage and digital animation. The work ranges from smoothly serene, as in Samper’s “Chromeform,” to chaotic modern, as in Wolfskill’s “HeadphoneMan.”
You can see their work Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. La Casa de la Cultura is in downtown Heredia, across from the Central Park.
