ENCINITAS — As a young artist, nothing could be more rewarding than showing your work in a gallery alongside professional artists.Such is the case in October where students grade 9 through 12 from the San Dieguito Academy will be exhibiting their art 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Oct.12 through Oct. 26, daily except Monday, at the Del Mar Art Center. Art teacher, Kajsa Medak, a glass and paint artist, challenged her students to make a personal connection with their art through figurative and abstract interpretations.
The reception honoring the students will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Oct. 20. The DMAC will be presenting a check for $1,000 to the San Dieguito Academy to help furnish art supplies for these budding artists. Visitors will get refreshments and free two-hour parking with validation.
