The following were works (top 3) selected for the Human Rights Poster contest and (Bottom) Congressional Art Exhibition with Congresswoman Katie Porter
Department meetings aren’t so bad when it includes art appreciating (and buying) in Laguna Beach. Working lunch included BIG plans for VAQUERO VISUAL ARTS day!
So much fun and ART and exploration! Art students had their eyes wide OPEN checking out downtown LA and the many sights/sites. The itinerary included: Cathedral of Our Lady Of Angels (Neo-Gothic!), unfortunately arrived too late to view the interior, then a walk to check out a bronze replica of the George Washington marble statue in Grand Central Park, next we snuck into the Metro Station for a look at mosaics based on Faith Ringgold paintings, and then onto the Disney Concert Hall to be WOWed by Frank Gehry’s deconstructivist architecture, and then the highlight visit to the Broad Contemporary museum (*mostly thanks to IHS art/photo/APAH/yearbook alum Chelsea Trinh*) where students got to view art LIVE by Shirin Neshat, Kara Walker, El Anatsui, Basqiuat, Kusama, Warhol, Lichtenstein and many more!
Our curious, and well-mannered mob then walked to Angel’s Flight funicular that took us to the Grand Central Market for an overwhelming variety of food options. Unfortunately, we ran out of time for our peek into the Bradbury Building, but were able to complete an almost-sprint through the Central Library to check out the exquisite rotunda and fabulous murals. We concluded by running (fast walking) a block or two (or 3) to find our bus patiently waiting to take us safely home to Irvine High. Absolute fantastic day only slightly marred by slow walkers 😉 More pics to come…

Although summer is wonderful, Vaquero Visual Arts teachers have been preparing for the 2017-18 school year with lots of “behind the scenes” planning and activities.
In addition to creating curriculum for the new UC approved Intro to Photo Journalism course, and taking a cajillion “lookinforlight” photos, Mrs. Tucker has been steadily updating her APAH research. Among numerous places, summer travel included visits to Mesa Verde National Park (Cliff Palace & petroglyphs!), Taos Pueblo, Millicent Rogers Museum of Native American Art (Maria Martinez pottery) and a visit to the Annenberg Space for Photography.
Hopefully Ms. Lux will provide updates on her art adventures and her new addition: RUBY!
And Mrs. Perales will share Teo, travels, concerts, and Yearbook camp and AP workshops…
Ms. Phillips had a SUPER busy summer of travel, adventure and home improvements while working on the new Animation curriculum.
Mrs. Khurgel had a huge challenge with creating AP 2-D Design curriculum, Animation, and Computer Graphics… and then there’s her whole French gig… and baby Nathan to chase after!
