Student Art Showcased Across Three Georgia Southern Campuses
More than sixty students in grades K-12 and their families were invited to Georgia Southern University for the opening of a year-long exhibition of their artwork. The students were part of the College of Education’s 17th Annual Art Extravaganza and attended either the Statesboro Campus event on February 26 or the Armstrong Campus event on March 5. Daria Collins, art teacher at the Tybee Island Maritime Academy, spoke at the Armstrong event, and Crystal Holman, artist and retired art teacher, spoke at the Statesboro event.
The student artwork can be seen in the Statesboro College of Education Building, the Armstrong University Hall and the Liberty Campus Building. Alisa Leckie, Ph.D., Assistant Dean for Partnerships and Outreach at the College of Education, helped organize the event and says, “The artwork on display makes our faculty and students smile. It really enhances the campus.”
Each year, the College of Education invites every school in the region to submit up to three pieces of student work to be part of the Art Extravaganza. This year, the artwork is from 25 schools across eight counties in the region.
