Art abounds in exhibition

From the elementary level to high school, from Carrollton to Windsor, students in Isle of Wight County showed their creativity in hundreds of ways on Thursday evening.
It was here that parents and faculty could see their children’s playfulness and skill in several mediums.
All this was for the annual exhibition of student art; this year the event took place in Georgie D. Tyler Middle School.
Sixth-grader at GTMS Brianna Hicks, 12, said this was the first year to exhibit, and she’s glad she did.
“It’s me,” Hicks exclaimed.
Using regular and construction papers, she formed a two-part piece that featured a horse and cat.
Using yellow paper coated in black ink, fellow Titan Keri Barton randomly scratched out a bunch of lines to make different styles.
This was also her first time in the show. Praise from her art teacher, David Cutting, encouraged the entry.
Several Windsor Elementary students expressed themselves by creating masks.
The Dukes at Windsor High School demonstrated their skills by painting on scrolls and using a sumi technique, which features brushwork.
