Last Day of School is May 13th!!

Local art students have an art show and reception at the Texas County Art Museum.

Local art students had a "gallery show" at the Texas County Art and History Museum.  Students and their parents were invited to the museum to view the artwork and receive their certificates.  The gallery viewing also included refreshments!!  Brandi Mace told us "it makes me feel like a real artist, with a reception and all!"  

Licking High School art students participated in the VFW Creative Patriotic Art Awards.  Students were asked to give a written explanation of what patriotism meant to them, and to create an artwork to express that idea.  Our college art class and our Mixed Media class were invited to participate in the contest by creating a patriotic artwork.  The best 16 were chosen to participate in the VFW contest, and were shown at the museum!  Our own Rayne Vanderpool took third place overall!!  Good job Rayne!!

Spring School Performance
Saturday, March 12 @ 2:00 pm

Our spring play is a children's play about prejudice.  Our story is called "Just Like Us".  It's about two groups of people, called the Blues and the Greens.  The Blues love music, and the Greens love poetry, but they can't stand each other!  They live on separate sides of what used to be a beautiful park, but because of their mutual distrust and hate, they don't go near each other, therefore the park starts to die.  There is only one tree left, our storyteller.  One night a stranger is ushered in by a storm, and she teaches the Blues and Greens to put aside their differences and get along.  She teaches them to sing, which combines the Greens' poetry and the Blues' music.

Our public performance is aimed at preschool and elementary students. We invite the public to come enjoy our performance, and bring their young children!  We will be performing Saturday, March 12 at 2:00 p.m. in the Jr. High Gym.  Tickets are $4 in advance and $5 at the door.  Students to young to attend school--are to young to have to pay for tickets!  Hope to see you all there!

Congratulations Jordon & Gage!!


Two of our students have been chosen to have their artwork submitted to the Congressional Art Contest!!

Artwork Chosen from all the students taking art this year, for submission to the Congressional Art Contest! 

Established in 2014, the Congressional Art Contest is a joint effort between the Missouri Alliance for Arts Education, the Missouri Art Education Association, and sponsored by Senator David Pearce, the Senate Art Exhibit showcases fine arts programs in all 34 Senate Districts.  The exhibit is located on the grounds of the Capitol in the hallway that leads from Senate parking to the Capitol ground floor entrance.

 K-12 teachers submit images of a work. Each of our 34 State Senators select a winning image to represent their district. These images are printed and hung throughout 2016 in the Missouri Capitol to advocate legislator support for the arts.

Good luck to both we think your artwork is AWESOME!!
