As we approach the anniversary of COVID shutting down life as we knew it, the world remains a different place in so many ways and the winter can feel even longer and darker. But in spite of this—or perhaps because of it—the arts at Lincoln continue to flourish, in new and ever-more inventive ways. While the cold, post-holiday weeks typically include a Winter Concert and an All-School Art Showcase and other activities that bring vibrancy to our spring countdown, those rituals had to be reimagined this year.
“Not only do our students want to create art that inspires them, but they want to share it with the community, even if they are not here to see it being placed in our hallways or gallery.” Anita Thompson, Visual Arts department head
Students and faculty not only found ways to transform the annual All-School Art Showcase and Winter Concert to fit our current times, they used the opportunity to discover new skills and push the boundaries of what is possible.
“Working with our students this year has been an inspiring time, as we discover that creating music during these unprecedented times—while different—brings joy, creativity, and fun to our days!” says Robb Barnard, Performing Arts faculty member. “Learning recording techniques, how to mix and blend tracks online as well as record from home has been a benefit to our learning that we may not have discovered in different times!”
"Our students inspire me daily!" says Anita Thompson, Visual Arts department head." Their depth of commitment to the creation of their craft is amazing. To watch all of our students, throughout the three divisions, bring back and forth all different types of media clearly shows their dedication. Whether they are picking up 25-pound bags of clay, coming into school carrying large canvases, or dropping off artwork to be displayed, these acts clearly illustrate their love of both their art and their school."
