UT High School Arts Academy
The 12th annual UT High School Arts Academy was held on March 16 in the School of Art for day-long classes in Drawing, Watercolor, Ceramics, Printmaking, Book Arts, Photography, Video, and Improv Design. All classes were taught by faculty, graduate students or former graduate students. The 80+ students were provided with lunch, a t-shirt designed by a former MFA student and an opportunity to view the UT Student Art Competition currently on exhibit in the Ewing Gallery. Students who participated came from 22+ area high schools in East Tennessee. At the end of the day, students toured the Art and Architecture facility to see the work produced in each of the classes. This event is coordinated by Marcia Goldenstein from the School of Art and Peggy Leland, Art Teacher, Central High School. Thanks to Lynn Champion in the College of Arts and Science, the William T. Ray Fellow and Scholar Fund, The School of Art, Knoxville Jerry’s Artarama, and XMC of East TN for making this special event possible.
