The LPIE Art Fair is the highlight of elementary school students' and instructors' year together. To ensure the selection of a broad range of art, each child has a special portfolio (large folder). These portfolios are stored in the classroom. All LPIE art is placed in these portfolios and not sent home until the end of the year. In this way, all art is available for selection for the end of year Art Fair.
We encourage all art instructors to help the children make their selection of art to be displayed at the Art Fair. With guidance, the students learn how to critique art and value their own creations.
One of the highlights of the Art Fair is the Stroke of Luck program. Artwork is randomly selected from a raffle held during the spring LPIE Art Fairs at each elementary school. The artisans of P & L Framing of Lafayette then take these 24 pieces of art, created by our students, and work their magic. Each piece is expertly and artistically framed before traveling through the city for showings at Town Hall Theater, Chow, and back to the elementary schools for display. The beautifully framed art work is then returned to the student to be treasured and displayed. This program would not be possible without the generous support of P & L Framing in Lafayette.
