Art is Alive at Clinton-Massie Schools
I was astonished at the variety and quality of the work. Most of the work was project oriented, as with the turtles, abstractions, portraits, and a snow scene-collage, for example, but many showed delightful originality within the themes. The pictures were fairly large and very colorful. Many of the young artists have excellent observation and skills with a variety of mediums, including charcoal, pastel, oil pastel, collage, and acrylics.
Any artist will tell you what a thrill it is to see your work on display for others to enjoy. Kudos to Mr. McKay for making this happen for the students at Clinton-Massie. I hope the parents and community continue to support the school's art program and help to provide supplies for these budding artists.
Art, an endangered species in many school systems, is alive and well in Clinton County.
