As Visual Arts Classic comes to a close, we look back on the eventful season with the theme for 2022-2023 being “Art and Texture.” Getting to know our wonderful team a bit better, the LHS Visual Arts Classic team consists of around 16 people, including our alternates. During regionals at Mauston High School, our team presented the long-term projects they’ve been working hard on, showcasing beautiful sculptures, paintings, pencil drawings, and more. While at regionals, the VAC team achieved a big win by placing first in the quiz bowl and first place overall, earning a spot at state.

When asked about her favorite part of regionals, Keleigh Bannach, a freshman and alternate on our VAC team, stated, “Definitely the quiz bowl because we won.” While preparing for state, our team expanded with new students joining as alternates. One of the newer alternates said, “I’m pretty excited for state!” At state, our team traveled to UW-Madison to compete, with a bustling campus and rooms filled with talented students working in various mediums. Lodi pushed through, and although we didn’t place in the top three overall, many members of our team received first and second place for their on-site projects.

When asked about her thoughts on State and her first year at VAC, Bannach replied, “I liked looking at the really cool stairwell with all the drawings on it and going on State Street. It was really fun, and I definitely plan on being on the team next year.” Our VAC team had a successful season, and with next year’s theme being “Art and Color,” our team is looking forward to what lies ahead!
