Congratulation Artists!

Please join me in congratulating three of our DRMS Student Visual Artists:  Cynae L. (8.2), Jussef P-D. (8.4), and Nicholas P. (8.4).

In late January, their artworks were entered in the 2018-19 Arts Festival of The Woman's Club of Raleigh and Junior Woman's Club of Raleigh.

The Arts Festival is billed as the largest Arts recognition program for young people in North Carolina and is in its 50th year. Students in Grades 6-8 participated in Crafts, Visual Arts, and Photography. 

Cynae was awarded first place in the craft category: Mosaics.  Nicholas and Jussef were awarded first and second place, respectfully, in the craft category: Weaving.  

I am proud of these students for taking what they have learned in the art classroom to another level.  Their persistence and willingness to reflect and revise produced visually strong original, abstract art works in different media.   While Cynae's mosaic communicates nature, Nicholas's and Jussef's weavings are a visual response to a personal, significant memory.

First and second place winners advanced to compete at the GFWC-NC District VI Arts Festival at First Baptist Church in Raleigh, on Saturday, February 16, 2019. The first place winners at the District VI Arts Festival will advance to the GFWC-NC State Arts Festival competition at Campbell University, Buies Creek, on Saturday, March 2, 2019 tentative.
