STS Middle School art teachers won't hesitate to tell you all about the creative talents of their students, but it's always nice to receive validation from art experts outside of our community. The annual Scholastic Art Awards were recently announced and 16 works of art submitted by 12 STS art students were recognized by the panel of judges.
Out of more than 3,000 middle school and high school entries reviewed by professional art jurors for the Eastern/Central North Carolina Region, only 300 received either Gold Key or Silver Key Awards. St. Timothy's School students received 7 Gold and Silver Key Awards and 9 honorable mentions from the judges. The Gold and Silver Key winning artwork is on display in the Barton College Art Gallery now through February 22, 2018.
The Scholastic Art Awards program was created for middle and high school students and is designed to encourage student achievement, to recognize fine art teachers, and to emphasize the importance of the visual arts in the school curriculum.
