Young artists put skills on display during Trojan Art Day

February 24, 2017

The creative juices (and paint) were flowing on Friday when about 400 local middle and high school students descended onto the Troy Campus for the annual Trojan Art Day.

Trojan Art Day offers workshops and demonstrations led by students and faculty in the University’s Department of Art and Design, preceding the District II Visual Arts Achievement Program awards ceremony, the conclusion to an art competition sponsored by the Alabama State Council on the Arts. Trojan Art Day and VAAP are partially funded by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts.

Take a look at some of the highlights from the day:

District II includes schools from Autauga, Barbour, Bullock, Butler, Chambers, Clay, Coffee, Coosa, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Dallas, Elmore, Geneva, Henry, Houston, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Montgomery, Pike, Russell, Randolph and Tallapoosa Counties.
