On 'TRAC' with art

Students from 15 area high schools met at Princeton High School Thursday afternoon for the fourth annual Three Rivers Athletic Conference (TRAC) Art Festival. Students participated in one of 15 workshops set up within various classrooms. Workshops offered instruction on various types of two-dimensional and three-dimensional categories of art. Art pieces were judged by Dana Collins, retired professor of art at Illinois Valley Community College and freelance artist in Princeton, and Ann Crosby, potter/artist and owner of Annie’s Little Pots in Princeton. The art festival is sanctioned and sponsored by the principals of each school. This year’s host teachers were Linda Ribar and Karen Greer of PHS.
