Art Winners
GCSS students from our elementary, middle, and high schools participated in the Youth Art Month exhibition sponsored by the Quinlan Visual Arts Center. Celebrating visual art education for grades K - 12, the event which is held annually during the month of March featured student artwork from Gainesville and Hall County schools. The exhibits included paintings, drawings, watercolors, photography, ceramics, sculptures, crafts, and other art forms. Students utilized their creativity in designing artwork reflective of their artistic visions unique to their personalities and interests. Several GCSS students won awards for their creations: Prentice McGarvey (1st Place - Enota MI Academy), Catie Rell Oliver (2nd Place - Enota MI Academy), Vanessa Lopez (3rd place - Gainesville Exploration Academy), Thomas Pennington (Honorable Mention - Enota MI Academy), Emily Stewart (1st place - GMS), Ohanna Ramirez (3rd place and Georgia Art League Young Artist Award winner - GHS), Junyi Li (2nd place - GHS), Alanis Nguyen Ortiz (Honorable Mention - GHS), Natalie Reid (3rd place - GHS), Bailey Becker (1st place - GHS). Bailey Becker, who graduated in May, also received the Charles J. Thurmond Youth Art Scholarship sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Gainesville, earning a $2,500 scholarship for finishing in first place for the "Best in Show" category. She also received the 2020 "Rising Star, Artist of Tomorrow" award.
Youth Art Month enables the community to recognize the artistic skills of young student artists and provides a platform for recognizing the significance of art education within schools and the value of art exposure within the community.
