REDWATER, Texas -- More than 100 people attended Redwater Independent School District's second annual student art show on May 12, showing their support for budding artists in every grade.

Highlights included a piece inspired by glass artist Dale Chihuly that every student had a hand in creating, high school art teacher Carrie Slay said. Sixth-graders contributed a wall panel inspired by sculptor Jen Stark, and there was also a collaborative, 100-hour drawing by Art 1 students.

Students also showed pieces that won awards in Visual Arts Scholastic Event, Junior VASE, Texas Elementary Art Meet, and Texarkana Regional Arts and Humanities Council contests and exhibitions.

Two students sold artworks they created, and attendees even got in on the creativity by completing a chalk mural during the show.

"I believe the art show is a way to bring our community and families together. It is a way to celebrate the skills students have built and hard work Redwater students have put into their creative voices. It has been amazing to see all the breakthroughs our art students have worked through this year," Slay said.

Junior High School and High School Assistant Principal Shaun George agreed.

"The Redwater ISD art show was a unique blend of talents that expressed the creativity of our students. It not only showcased all their hard work and efforts, but also allowed our RISD community to experience that creativity in an immersive environment," he said. "The art show is just another example of why, 'It's a GREAT day to be a DRAGON!'"
