I WAS ASKED TO JUDGE A SHOW!
I got a phone call from the St. Johns County Education System the other day. They asked me if I would be willing to be the judges for an Art Show for middle school students. It is being held at the St. Augustine Art Association here in St. Augustine.
Since I teach art to both youths and adults, I decided this would be so much fun! I really enjoy children and their creativity levels can be through the roof, so to speak. It was very interesting to see what each one came up with. There were quite a few categories of art to be judged, ranging from drawing, painting, and photography or graphic arts, to 3-D art, or sculpture and paper mache.
Held on Thursday, April 5th, it took a while to go through all the 128 pieces of art and narrow it down to the winners, but in the end we (me and the 2 ladies at the art association helping me) made a decision. The winners are...I took some photos and posted them below for you to see. As I said, these kids are talented! I have the first place photos for each category and the "best of show"
In the drawing category: This also is the "Best in Show" winner
