CLARK COUNTY – The Southwest Washington Regional High School Art Show streamed on Facebook Live on March 31. Viewers saw award-winning pieces, and heard from artists and teachers as they explained how they adapted to at-home teaching and learning during the pandemic.
“We are so pleased at the level of participation we received for Southwest Washington’s first-ever virtual art show,” said Amelia Holmes, ESD 112’s art show coordinator. “The success of this year’s show is a testament to the resilience, passion, and creativity of the art students and teachers in our region, and we are so grateful for the amount of interest they showed in participating, despite having to do so virtually.”
Winners will advance and compete in the Virtual State Superintendent of Public Instruction Art Show in Olympia, with a virtual artwork gallery on display from April 8 to May 20, and an awards ceremony on May 20.
In addition to awards, several students received scholarships to Central Washington University.
