Promising PicassosStunning student-created works of art are display in the annual Promising Picassos Art Exhibition each spring in the Bank of America room of the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina. The Promising Picassos event is presented annually by the Island School Council for the Arts (ISCA), and each year, the juried exhibit features over 70 impressive pieces of artwork. Promising Picassos allows young, emerging artists to showcase their art, through various mediums in the annual show presented by ISCA. Participation in the student art exhibition, now in its 22nd year, was open to all students, grades 3 through 12 in the public, private and home schools of southern Beaufort County. Additionally, student artwork is chosen by ISCA and displayed throughout the year in the Bank of America Room.
Dizikes Monotype and Drypoint ExhibitFollowing a five-week class with artist Danielle DeMers, participants’ monotype and drypoint prints are on display in the Bank of America Room.
Monotype has been a favored medium of many artists as it combines the spontaneity of painting with the distinct qualities of a print. Both the "painterly print" (monotype) and the gestural intaglio line (drypoint) were explored on two different plate types.
Drypoint is mainly presented as line work. With just a needle (awl, or sharp metal point) and a piece of plastic, participants experienced the gestural freedom that this nonacid technique allows.
