ArTs at Bost – Touching Lives

ArTs at Bost First Annual Holiday Art Contest!

Student artists with the group ArTs at Bost recently had the opportunity to participate in the First Annual Holiday Art Contest at Bost. Participants were asked to enter one piece of three-dimensional art if their choosing that they created during the fall/winter art session. There were 10 students who chose to participate this year.  The judging was held during a private reception on 12/06/18, and winners were announced during art class on 12/13/18.

Tyera “Birdie” Collins, Bost employee, presented the awards to the winners.  Special thanks to our artist in residence, Cathy Mason, for all the instruction and assistance she has provided.  Also, a very special thanks to our guest judges who are also local artists:  Jane Hartsfield, Teresa Slaybaugh, and Rhee Reamy. We are so very appreciative of the time they’ve given to this worthwhile event.

This year’s winners:

1st Place – Stephanie Kizziar – $100

2nd Place – Sandy McCarty – $75

3rd Place – Denise Chapman – $50
