April = Art + Awards for Young Artists

The month of April has brought showers of awards for visual arts students at Fayette County High.

The school was the only one from Fayette, and just one of 35 statewide, to have student work juried into the Georgia High School Ceramic Symposium held April 16 at the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts in Newnan. The two students whose pieces were showcased were Amy Donadeo and Katie Trebendis.

Katie Trebendis, along with fellow student AJ Klemp, has been accepted into the Allstate Honors Art Exhibition that will be held at Kennesaw State University May 6-7. Once again, Fayette County High is the only high school in the county to have artwork accepted into the competition. The school’s students are up against others from some of the best art schools in the state including the DeKalb School for the Art and Savannah Arts Academy.

“This event is very competitive. It is a great honor for our students to be selected and have their work up against the best student artists in the state,” says Pamela Woodworth-Watkins, Fayette County High’s visual art and design teacher.

Also, Jeni Hill was Fayette County High’s winner in the Creative Self-Expression Show sponsored by the Great Frame Up of Peachtree City. Her work is being shipped to the national competition in Los Angeles where it will be judged by the show’s national spokesperson, actress and artist Jane Seymour, along with a judging panel. Two winners will receive a $2,000 scholarship.
