In February Jim Wallace, art teacher, will start looking at and picking projects from the students trying to enter the Evansville Art Show.

“Our primary art competition every school year is the Evansville Museum’s Annual High School Art Show in the Spring,” Wallace said.

There are many categories to choose from to enter work.

Desmond Madison, a senior, has sent his work to the art show for the past two or three years.

“I have had one thing get chose for the art show, it was a printer of flowers,” Madison said.

To get art into the show Wallace said to do any artwork the best as possible. Then, give the artwork to Wallace, and he will send it in for the judges to take a look at it.

Madison said he plans to send at least one thing into the show this year.

“I plan to send in my clay shackles,” Madison said.

Austin Feagley, senior said he does his best on all his work.

“I want to try and make a cardboard Stormtrooper helmet,” Feagley said.

Also, on Saturday, September 23, 2017, there is an USI Art Day at the USI school campus, there will be free art classes. There will be one morning sessions, and one afternoon session. There are a variety of 3-hour classes that include ceramics, painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, woodworking, and graphic design.

“I think it is a good experience for young artist who need the help, and very convenient that they are free and close,” Feagley said.
