Bend-Area Student Art Exhibited at Thump Coffee in March

During March, Thump Coffee in downtown Bend celebrates student artists from all walks of life, as local art educator Marcy Monte brings a mix of student art works to exhibit. Home school, Bend High School, Marshall High School and Cascade Middle School students’ works of art will be displayed throughout the month.

“Have you always dreamed of writing your own book? Students at Cascade Middle School have written, illustrated and bound children’s books with a positive message for their readers,” says art teacher Marcy Monte. “Cascade students books will be mounted on the wall, and some to be looked at in the cafe. These books are the ones chosen by their peers as the ones most like the Caledcott or Newberry awards.”

“Marshall High School student Erika Arback has created portraits that will help you look deeply into life, while home school students Molly, Clair and Zoe Kern incorporate art into their every day studies.”

These and other creations will be on display at Thump Coffee throughout March.
