CIO 2013 group photoThirty St. Margaret’s students were honored this year at Color It Orange, a county wide annual juried youth art exhibition at Laguna College of Art + Design. Their pieces were on display at the studios and galleries of Laguna College of Art + Design from March 17-24.

This year, for the first time, Color It Orange was limited to only high school students. More than 50 county art teachers took part in the exhibition including St. Margaret’s Upper School art teachers Josh Friedman, Karen Poffenberger and Barbara Nelson. Each teacher selected works from 10 of their students for the exhibit.

More than 500 pieces were judged in genres including drawing, painting, sculpture, print and photography to receive one of 14 scholarships to attend Laguna College of Art+Design pre-college summer courses. Freshman Alyssa Maita and senior Melisa Osborne won full tuition to attend one of the college’s three courses offered in their summer program: drawing fundamentals, fundamentals of figure drawing, or fundamentals of graphic design. Alyssa received the scholarship for her black and white digital photographic portrait, and Melisa was awarded for a highly-detailed watercolor still life.

For more than 38 years, Color It Orange has been encouraging and honoring artistic expression among Orange County public and private school students from kindergarten through grade 12.
