Hall High School will host art festival Thursday

SPRING VALLEY — Hall High School will host the Tri-County Conference Art Festival on Thursday. The art exhibit will be open to the public in the gym from 6 to 7 p.m.

The art work of approximately 80 students will be divided into 24 categories. While the art work is being judged, students will attend workshops where they will use their creative talents to make a project. Dinner will be served to participants in the cafeteria. At 6 p.m., everyone will return to the gym for the awards ceremony and listen to the judges’ critiques of the blue ribbon winners and the Best of Show. Ribbons will be given to the first four places, and the blue ribbon winners will also receive a conference medal.

The judges for this year’s festival will be Dana Collins and Linda Ribar.

The various workshops that students will be attending, and the presenters, include tie-dyeing T-shirts, Tina Frasco and Cheri Linnig; dichroic pendants, Carrie Gonzalez; pencil/charcoal drawing, Hugo Heredia; and glass etching, Mary Michael.

The art festival is being made possible through a grant provided by the Hall Education Foundation. The organizer for this event is Karen Klopcic, art teacher at Hall High School.
