Hesston High School art student Libby Reimer will have artwork on display as part of the Kansas Art Education Associations Youth Art Month celebration at the state capital on March 2, 2013.
Reimer’s piece, ‘Peacocks’ will be on display representing Hesston.
“I was really excited that I was picked,” she said.
Reimer’s art had gotten the attention of art teacher Kathy Schroeder nearly a year ago.
“I was expecting it because she really liked it,” she said.
Reimer said Schroeder wanted her piece to be seen by a larger audience.
“We were really surprised it didn’t get picked into the Scholarstic Art Fair. We didn’t want it just sitting around, so we entered it,” she said.
Reimer said the process of making the print was very complicated.
“It’s a lino-cut print. And I used the water-color progressive and Chine-collé printing techniques,” she said.
Reimer, who created the piece as a sophomore, said ‘Peacocks’ was her first attempt at the print.
