There are many art competitions coming up in February. The art competitions coming up are the Tiny Art Show at the Art Center of the Bluegrass, the high school art show for Kentucky, the congressional art competition, the sister cities competition, and another bookmark competition for the Danville High School library.

Mrs. Stinnett explained that “The tiny art show is an art competition where your art has to be smaller than 6-by-6 (inches). The high school art show for Kentucky is an art competition where high school kids compete in art shows. The sister cities (competition) is an annual contest that encourages youth worldwide to express the mission of Sister Cities International through original artwork.”

There are a handful of DHS students competing in these. Some of the students competing are senior Meghan Minniear and senior Juliana Tecpile.

Minniear is entering into the Kentucky high school art competition, the congressional art competition of 2020 and the tiny art show. She said that her favorite thing about competing in art competitions is “the fact that you get to see art for other places.”

Tecpile, who has competed in a couple of art competitions in the past, said that her favorite thing about competing in art competitions is “that art really helps me relax and art can really help people going through things.”
