A Place Where Art Education is Discussed and Explored!

Meet Lexi Brock

“I was practically born with a paintbrush in one hand and a pencil in the other.  I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t doing something artistic,” confesses Lexi Brock, a senior at Penn High School in Mishawaka.  Recently accepted into Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan, she says she cannot wait to “take as many art classes as humanly possible and just soak it all up like a sponge!”   As our Young Artist of the Month, Lexi has been awarded a free studio art class at SBMA, and we’re anxious to see what amazing work she creates when she’s enrolled here.

Drawing is an area of the visual arts in which Lexi is especially gifted, and she tends to use her dreams and personal experiences as inspiration for her pieces.  We invite you to browse some images of Lexi’s work, and please remember that nominations for our Young Artist of the Month are always available right here.
“Diver-city” is an oil pastel, ink, charcoal, colored pencil, and crayon drawing of fish in water.


Next, a linoleum block print of a fox and gears done on hard cut/battleship linoleum Lexi entitled “Running the Machine.”

The scratch drawing below won a Scholastic Gold Key this year. It was created from photographs that Lexi had taken and combined with her drawing to create a surrealistic effect.
