On Monday, Nov. 5, 2012 the Hay Springs art class attended the CSC Art Department’s annual “Art Day” for area high school students. High school students from Alliance, Bridgeport, Chadron, Crawford, Gordon/Rushville, Hay Springs, Hemingford, Mitchell, Morrill, and Sioux County, Nebraska as well as Douglas and Oelrichs, South Dakota came to participate in the workshops.
Art department faculty, along with CSC art student assistants, provided hands-on workshops and demonstrations from nine different categories: mixed media, pastel drawing, watercolor, wire sculpture, graphic design, ceramics, printmaking, glassblowing, and photography. They informed students of art scholarships available at CSC also.
Each student has the opportunity to experience and create art with three different mediums or methods unavailable to them here at Hay Springs, while meeting other art students. During the day students viewed two art galleries, the Marie Sandoz museum, and Cabela’s animal display on campus, also. This year we had time to visit the Earth Science museum plus other exhibits in the CSC Science building.
Students agreed they were glad they were able to attend, learned new things, and will enjoy the “Art- It’s Serious Stuff” T-shirts they received.
Here are pictures of the students “in action”.
