Lakeland Christian Academy Art Students Continue Tradition of Providing Center Pieces for Right to Life Banquet
Right to Life is pleased that Lakeland Christian Academy will, once again, be providing center pieces for the 2018 Fall Legacy of Life Banquet.
The LCA art program has a focus and commitment to “giving back” talent to the community. They recently finished two large works of art that are now installed at the YMCA and Joe’s Kids Therapy Center. There will soon be a 20-foot piece at Grace College.
A highlight of the Lakeland Christian Academy Art Department is giving the gift of talent to Right to Life four years strong.
Five years ago, my husband and I were invited to attend the Right to Life Banquet by friends who had sponsored a table. Though I had received emails and updates since my oldest daughter was a baby (nineteen years ago), I had not realized the gravity and scope of impact until I attended this inspiring and eye-opening event within 1,200 members of my own community at the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center in Winona Lake.
Sixty art students of Lakeland Christian Academy volunteered to help create faceted vase centerpieces for the banquet the following fall. Students excelling in math designed the faceted shapes, wood was cut, sanded, painted, and flowers arranged. The act of helping and serving opened a wide door for curiosity, discussion, and compassion within and beyond the classroom.
