I am so pleased to announce that 6 of our Durham Middle School artists have made it to the finals in the COMMUNITY YOUTH ART MONTH COMPETITION for the State of Georgia. All of these students worked extremely hard to create a 2D or 3D art piece that represents what community means to them. All of these ladies worked with a partner to make these beautiful and motivating pieces. Congratulations and good luck to the following; Meghan Gray and Elizabeth Bell, Dascha Cherepakhin and Jaylyn Baldwin, Victoria Moreno and Maddie Shuff!

We had a phenomenal show last night at Mable House. Durham students collaborated with k-12 students around the county to create a 3D/Ceramic Exhibit for the community. Special thank you to the teachers and students at Osborne High School for setting it up!!!
The pin up show at KSU is a one day exhibit and contest open to all. You may submit 2 pieces and the medium must be able to be mounted to a wall with 4 push pins. You may bring the artwork to the festival yourself and hang it up between 11 a.m. and 1:30 pm Saturday 29th for judging OR the first 10 Durham students to bring Ms. Gaut artwork for the festival may drop it off to the art room for Ms. Gaut to deliver it to KSU. If you are bringing the artwork to Durham to have it delivered make sure Mrs. Gaut gets it BEFORE Monday April 17th!!
Good luck to the following students that have entered their ceramic piece for the April Diversity show at Mable House. We will find out soon if your work will be on exhibit for all in the county to see.
(Lainey Hall, Bailey Caudill, Riley Curtis, Marie Axcell, David Rodgers, Thomas Foley, Johnathan McEntire, Thomas Prewett) :)
JUNK YARD ART WARS:

Is it junk, trash, or treasure? Whatever you like to call it, recyclable materials can become a valuable resource in the eyes and hands of an artist. This art invitational is a chance for students to rethink, re-imagine, and reinvent the concept of what art is or has to be…And while we’re at it, do our part to contribute to the three R’s of recycling: reduce, reuse, and recycle.
