Students at Opstad Elementary School are getting ready to share the output of their imaginations with parents, grandparents, friends and any one else with an eye for Legos, colorful weavings, model volcanoes and the occasional mutant ninja turtle.

Opstad’s Evening of Fine Art is 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 12, at the school.

The night is a way for parents and other adults to visit the school and find out what children can create.

The growing collection of exhibits include drawings and other artwork, Lego models of space stations, robots and vehicles, a display of designs using light, and other creativity.

Opstad third grade student and budding weaver Lukasz Galecki contributed about ten feet of bright color in one of his contributions to the show. His handmade project chronicles the month-and-a-half-long effort to create the artwork on a loom at home. The weaving started as a rug, but grew into something more: a long, vibrant piece of art.

While other Opstad artists have explored weaving, nothing like Galecki’s handiwork has graced the school’s halls lately.

Look for Galecki’s “Magnificent Art of Weaving” and other student contributions in the school multipurpose room during the art night.
