PCA STUDENTS PLACE IN LOCAL ART CONTEST
PCA students showcased their creative talents by participating in The Arts Council of Montgomery’s Doing Our Own Thing (D.O.O.T.) visual arts contest.
Joy Cathey and Cole Swarts placed in the juried art contest. Joy’s opaque painting submission of a realistic portrait received an honorable mention and Cole’s mixed media submission of a beautifully adorned Japanese Geisha placed second among the hundreds of entries. The event may be best known for its sidewalk chalk art drawing competition! Local celebrities judge the on-site creations from several area schools. This year’s group of 23 art students placed third in the sidewalk chalk competition with a stunning collage of the River Region’s rich history entitled “History of the River Region”. The design features silhouettes of a Native American chieftain, Richard Montgomery, Daniel Pratt, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Rosa Parks.
The Arts Council of Montgomery’s Doing Our Own Thing (D.O.O.T.) visual arts contest is a day of education and expression as well as an art show for students in grades 9-12 from across Montgomery, Autauga, and Elmore counties. Art contest submissions allow students to attend intensive one-day workshops taught by the professionals artists from across the state. Workshops include art forms such as pottery, painting, mosaics, drawing, sculpture, and more.
