Forty art students have their work on display at the first-ever (Teen)y Tiny Art Show at the Lewisville Public Library. The (Teen)y Tiny Art Show provided students from the community opportunities to show off their skills. While a meet the artists reception took place on Monday, Oct. 2, the art is on display until Oct. 28.

Art teacher Alicia Shaw encouraged students to get out of their comfort zones and take the necessary steps to show their work to the public.

“I love to show my students’ work,” Shaw said. “They just don’t realize how good they really are.”

A variety of art was submitted from pastels, paintings, sculptures and water colors. Students had to follow certain requirements in order to participate. For example, the maximum dimensions for the artwork were 4 inches X 4 inches X 4 inches, artwork couldn’t be older than two years old, and it couldn’t contain any sort of graphic content, nudity or profanity. 

Juniors Peyton Seybert and Sabbatha Dow and senior Charlize Brown attended the meet the artist reception on Monday. The reception allowed the students to further display their own artwork and skill sets.

“This was a way for me to show my skills to the world,” Seybert said. “I felt great about it.”

For Dow, art has been her outlet of creativity. 

“Art has really helped me expand my mind and thinking outside of the box,” Dow said. 

Shaw encourages everyone to go see the students’ art and support them. She hopes everyone will love the art as much as she did, and she’s proud of the hard work all 40 students put into this art show. 

“These kids turn nothing into something,” Shaw said. “I’m such a proud art mama.”
