Thirteen art students traveled to Hays last Wednesday to go to the Fort Hays State annual High School Art Day. The students participated in a sidewalk chalk competition and toured the different art departments at the college. They also took some of their own artwork up to be exhibited in a show at the coliseum.


Three different groups participated in a sidewalk chalk competition. Each group was supposed to make a movie poster or an album cover using squirrels. Anna Carter, Kelby Garrett, and Sage Lohoefener made a movie poster with the theme of “Step-Squirrels.”


Alana Meitl, Kensey Garrett, McKenna Fortin, and Eryn Freeman made a poster using Scrat from “Ice Age.” Brynna Addleman, Kiara Brown, and Alissa Sporn made a poster with a squirrel in a pile of acorns titled, “Finding Juanita.”


Josh Russ, Nathan Cartmell, and Sierra Davis tried their hands at blacksmithing.


Each school set up its own booth to display their work, and judges awarded certificates to the best ones. Many students received certificates for their outstanding artwork.


 “The art students had a great experience at FHSU High School Art Day,” said art teacher Jillian Springer. “They got to see an aluminum pour, be blacksmiths, see t-shirts be printed and so much more. We are hoping to make this an annual trip for us.”


 “I really liked the experience and getting to see everyone else's artwork,” said Sage Lohoefener. “I also enjoyed watching the college students working on their own projects.”


McKenna Fortin said, “I loved going to see all the different departments. The ceramics lab was my favorite.”
