The Macon County School System’s 12th annual art show, dubbed this year as “Slice of Life,” began April 21 with a reception at the Macon County Public Library. Families and friends of the 300 students, whose artwork was chosen for display, attended the reception. Students from every school in Macon County have artwork on display in the library’s atrium until May 3.

ART REPRESENTING every school in the Macon County School System will be on display in the atrium at the Macon County Library until May 3. The art represents a variety of mediums.

Mediums presented include paint, recycled art, printmaking, clay, and more. The work was evaluated and submitted by the nine art teachers currently employed with the Macon County School System. 

SKYLER ALLEN, a second grader at East Franklin Elementary School, was just one student out of 300 representing the Macon County School System whose work was chosen for the annual art show, which took place April 21 at the Macon County Public Library. Skyler’s art was created using cut paper, pen, and stickers.
