Lucas Hachey's 'Cubism Collage with a Bird of Peace' Selected for 2024 Young at Art Exhibition
The artwork of Academy 2nd grader Lucas Hachey has been chosen for the 2024 Young at Art Student Art Exhibition at the Tampa Museum of Art. Each year, Mrs. Galina Abele, lower and middle school art teacher, selects one special artist from Pre-K to 8th grade to represent AHN at the event, which celebrates budding artistic talent from across the Tampa Bay area. Abele shares, “A huge part of the voting criteria was the growth of his artistic ability this year. I am very impressed with Lucas’ artistic skills.”
His piece, "Cubism Collage with a Bird of Peace," is a stunning showcase of his imagination and talent. Lucas says, "I was inspired to make my Picasso picture because I like to dig down in my imagination and create a thing that has not been done before.”
Lucas’ journey highlights his personal achievement and AHN’s dedication to the arts, which encourages students to explore their creative potential. His participation in this prestigious show is a proud moment for the school and a celebration of Lucas' artistic expression and growth.
