A student art show featuring the fine artistic skills of Waialua Intermediate and High School students continues its run through July 31 at Waialua Library.

On display are paintings, drawings, ceramics, sculptures, collages and photos. Most of the artwork, all from students of Howard Farrant, are on sale, with 10 percent of each sale donated to the library.

Petie McManus, board member with Friends of Waialua Library, said 11 pieces had been sold as of last week, although a total dollar amount wasn’t known. “They’re very inexpensive, of course, but that’s very good,” she said.“It’s good for the kids to get a lesson in economics and take pride in their work.”

The Friends hosted an opening reception May 10, where outstanding artists Wailani Bowers (first), Miranda Lopez (second), Momi Green (third) and Chris Clark (fourth) won prizes, and all artists entered a drawing for gift bags donated from area businesses.

About 25 of Farrant’s students have pieces on display. “We had a good opening this year,” he said, “where a lot of parents and students and friends came, so this is an opportunity to celebrate what they’ve done.”

For details, call 637-8286.
