Stuck On Art

Back by popular demand, “Stuck On Art”!

LS R-7 teams from the middle and high schools will work from 10 am to 1 pm on Saturday, October 13, in the main intersection of Third Street and SW Main Street, to create original artwork on large banners using only black masking tape.  You won’t want to miss this creative approach to subject matter incorporating design principles such as balance, contrast, emphasis, movement, proportion and variety.  Superior craftsmanship and technique collide with creative expression in this unique exhibition.

Announcing this year’s theme: STUCK ON LEE’S SUMMIT   

Students must find their design inspiration from somewhere in our hometown, Lee’s Summit, Missouri.  Lee’s Summit has numerous architecture, landscape, signage, murals, parks, historical venues, public art and attractions from which to spark their imaginations!

In 2013, the first “Stuck On Art” competition was held in downtown Lee’s Summit during the Summit Art Festival as a way to include the LS R7 art students in the community event.  Teams of 4-6 students from each middle and high school are selected to participate.  The only “marking” tool that can be utilized is black masking tape.  The tape width can be altered.  Summit Art provides professional art judges for this event.  Art staff from the middle and high schools support and oversee the development and design of the student compositions as well as provide supervision on Saturday morning.

Funding for this project is supported in part by grants received through the Lee’s Summit Arts Council.

Participating schools are:  Bernard Campbell Middle School, Pleasant Lea Middle School, Summit Lakes Middle School, Lee’s Summit High School, Lee’s Summit North High School, and Lee’s Summit West High School.
