Art showcase slated

Brenden West/Clinton HeraldClinton High School sophomore Brett Wilson puts the finishing touches on artwork days prior to the annual district art show on Saturday and Sunday.

CLINTON — The Clinton Community School District administration center will once again host the annual district-wide art show this weekend. 

The event showcases the creative renderings of students from kindergarten through high school. For curriculum director John Jorgenson, it’s another yearly evoker of pride.

“One reason we have the art show is we want to celebrate the fine arts,” Jorgenson said. “Clinton has had such a great history of the arts.”

Works from all students will be on display at the Administration Center, 1401 12th Ave. South, on Saturday and Sunday. Doors will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Featured works include drawings, paintings, sculptures, photography and 3-D imaging. Spectators who miss the event will still be able to take artwork in the following week. 

Jorgenson said the center will leave the works up until April 30. He estimated hundreds of work will be on display.

Jorgenson hopes community members will come to support local youth. The art show is a very visual example of talented students steered by quality educators, he said.

“The kids do such a tremendous job of creating the artwork, and the teachers do a wonderful job of drawing that talent out of the kids,” Jorgenson said. “Doing the artwork provides a lifetime of memories for the kids.”
