Virtual art exhibition,”PSYCHE: Surreal Intuitions”, featuring new works by our Spring 2021 Artist-in-Residence, Liala Amin

PSYCHE: Surreal Intuitions features 20 works on paper by Spring 2021 artist-in-residence, Liala Amin. All works were created at her Milwaukee art studio in Walker’s Point. Due to COVID-19, we shifted our program to become virtual for the North High community.

This exhibition will run through August 31, 2021.

Psyche 

psy·che

/ˈsīkē/ 

“the human soul, mind, or spirit.” 

Who am I?

The answer to that question is found through introspection. Self-discovery arrives in soul-searching. 

The spirit moves in seasons, constantly forming and changing. To find meaning I turn to what my body and mind speak and translate dreams and emotions into free flowing images. This is intuitive making, letting the unconscious speak. 

Human experience is vivid and transformation endless.

Thank you mosaic tile for Dulmes Carpet One

Mrs. Mattern’s art students have been recycling discarded bits of colored glass from past stained glass projects. They glue the glass onto ceramic floor tiles, then they grout their designs to make lustrous mosaics. Recently, Mr. Gary Dulmes generously donated 40 tiles for these projects, from Dulmes Carpet One. Mrs. Mattern attended the grand opening of Dulmes’ new store and presented him with a mosaic of his logo to show our thanks.

Share Your Voice. Share Your Vision.

Studio Visit with artist-in-residence, Liala Amin

On Saturday, March 20th Mr. Juarez took a drive to Walker’s Point in Milwaukee to see what artist Liala Amin was up to in her studio. Liala is our Spring semester artist-in-residence working virtually with our staff & students.

Liala Amin is a multidisciplinary artist exploring the facets of femininity through themes of spirituality, mythology, and personal identity. While painting is her preferred medium, her work includes mixed media paintings, drawings, and textiles. She flows between mediums to explore the intuitive nature of  art making. Amin considers her art a visual journal and an outlet to manifest introspection, storytelling, and process.

Amin graduated from the Peck School of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee  in 2014 with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Fibers. Her work has been exhibited within Midwest group exhibitions and has received features in several publications. She is currently an Artist in Residence at Var West Gallery in Milwaukee.

About the Sheboygan North High Artist-in-Residence Program

The Sheboygan North High Art Department created the NHS Artist in Residency Program (NHS AiR) in the fall of 2014. This program is designed to expose, educate and engage the North High community to local and regional artists each semester during the current academic school year. Our artist in residence works with our staff and students for one semester (18 weeks). The AiR program is currently in its fourth year. 

The goals of the NHS Artist-in-Residence (NHS AiR) Program are:

  • to expand the experience of each student in the field of the arts, 
  • foster creativity, enrich education in any given subject, 
  • to present staff members with new ideas and options for instruction.

The 2020-2021 Sheboygan North High Artist-in-Residence Program is supported by a grant from The Kohler Foundation, Inc.
