Over 50 Grand Blanc High School seniors competed for GBAC College Scholarships and awards. Participants submited 3-5 pieces of artwork, including drawings in graphite, charcoal, marker or ink; paintings in watercolor or acrylic; ceramics; textiles; mixed media; digital art and photography. Art teacher, Steve Barker also requires that competing senoirs include personal statements as part of their portfolios.
The GBAC beleives that the annual Student Art Show encourages student creativity, fosters responsibility through the meeting of deadlines, increases confidence in exhibit procedures, and gives students an opporuntiy to represent themselves and their school to the public. It also provides an opportunity for the community to enjoy and appreciate student artwork and creativity.
