Students drop off art for Congressional High School Art Show

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - The Stanley is getting ready to host the Congressional High School Art Show and Tuesday marked the staff's first look at the submissions.

Tuesday was "drop-off day," and at 2 p.m. Wednesday is another opportunity to submit work. It's a chance for high school students to show off what they've been creating all year -- including watercolor, oil paintings and photography.

For some, this is their first time being recognized as an artist.

"This gives them the opportunity to work up to a higher level to advance," said Nichole Grant, with special events and marketing at The Stanley. "To show they have talent, and it looks good on resumes for going to college."

The Congressional High School Art Competition is taking place at 6 p.m. April 3 at The Stanley.

Six students will be chosen to go to the regional show, which is at Munson in May.
