Graham Art Show

Each year, the Alabama State Department of Education sponsors the "State Superintendent's Visual Arts Exhibit." Our local art show at Graham is the first step in that process. The best work from our school goes to the central office where it is judged amongst artwork from the other schools in our system. The best work at that level goes to Montgomery, where it will hang as part of the State Superintendent's Visual Arts Exhibit.

Pictured here is a collection of works by some of our 1st graders. As you scroll down the page, you will see the winners from each grade level. When posting student names, we use first names only to protect the privacy of our students. The work posted here may be viewed by others not only in Talladega, but also in other parts of the United States or other parts of the world.

We would like to thank Tommy Moorehead for serving as our judge. Those who know Tommy realize the great asset and resource he is for the children in our community. Thanks also to Connie Vickers, who served as Artist in Residence last spring and summer for our school system. She is returning for the spring as well. Each class has had either one or two lessons with Mrs. Vickers during December. She will rejoin us in January.

The State Superintendent's Visual Arts Exhibit consists of two categories. The first is drawing/painting. You see here a collection created by one of the kindergarten classes. The other category is graphic arts/photography. Every Graham student who has participated in Writing to Read is familiar with graphic art. Mrs. Scroggins teaches the students to use a computer program to draw images on the screen. The students can later print them. You see also a group of 3rd grade black and white images created on the computer.
