LCS Junior High Art Teacher Karla Young paints a portrait for Fairfield Medical Center
In a recent edition of the Fairfield Medical Center weekly publication, Monday Morning, our very own LCS Junior High Art Teacher Karla Young was highlighted as the artist of their newest painting to be displayed later this year in honor of the healthcare workers during COVID-19.

“Earlier this year, FMC Board Member Dan Fruth approached former Board member Ron Burris with the idea of dedicating a piece of artwork to the FMC team. After discussing some ideas of what that piece would look like, Burris reached out to Young. After doing some research that included looking at dozens of photos of nurses and doctors, Young decided to paint a portrait of a healthcare worker. She used an abstract approach with shades of black, white and blue to create the portrait, paying particular attention to the eyes.”

I was trying to convey some special motion through the eyes,” Young said. “I actually overlapped images of three sets of eyes to pull out the best features of each one to make eyes that looked expressive with a bit of sadness but also tinged with hope that together we'll get through this.”

“Burris said the finished piece is something that he believes will serve as a reminder for generations to come of the sacrifice made by healthcare workers during COVID-19.”

Amazing work, Karla!
