Lake Park student shows promise as an artist

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Nathan Le is a 4th grader at Lake Park Elementary School, and folks are impressed with his artistic ability.

Students were assigned to produce an art project with historical implications, at least half a century old, and Nathan went the extra mile.

“We wanted to get as involved as possible in the Dougherty County Historic Preservation Commission Art Contest so I told the students to find a building or place that was more than 50 years old and to do an art project around it,” Art Teacher Allison Starr said. “They had a choice between doing a drawing, a painting or a sculpture and Nathan chose to do two.”

And while his drawing of Radium Springs Gardens is no less impressive, it was his sculpture of the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce building that caught the eye of his teachers and classmates.

Le's sculpture and drawing will be among a host of other student work on display at the Albany Area Arts Council beginning today when the competition winners are announced during a special event at the AAAC's downtown location.
