Thanks to a partnership with the Daviess County Public Library, several Owensboro Middle School South students’ works of art have been published in a book, which is being sold at the library’s Frederica street location.
OMS South art teacher Brian Murphy says the freehand drawings reflect a relaxed and meditative mood.
“The students created the drawings as part of my instructional unit on Line and Design elements and principles. I decided to submit them with student permission to be considered for publication. My goal is for students to create art to share with others and this was a perfect opportunity for the students to see their work in print,” said Brian Murphy, OMS art teacher.
The book is called Doodle Caboodle. It’s been sold at the DCPL for $5. It features student drawings called Zen Doodles.
"It's nice to be recognized for my art ideas. My work was inspired by my thoughts and patterns I see around me. My art teacher also gave me examples and ideas to improve my work,” said Bronson Miller, OMS South student.
“My designs came from sports. I wanted to use the image of LeBron James. My teacher said be creative, so I filled the background with ideas about mazes and a variety of different lines," said LeBron Board, OMS South student.
The images are featured to promote the monthly Family Time program at the library.
