Sixty-eight high school artists from across the district accepted the challenge to compete in Granite Education Foundation’s Art Night Live 2014. The three hour live art competition will be held at Taylorsville High School on Monday, Jan. 27, at 4 p.m. Winning participants will be awarded scholarships provided by the Foundation.
This is the 11th year Granite Education Foundation (GEF) has presented Art Night Live, an event that provides some of the district’s most talented artists a venue to showcase their talents and creativity. GEF teamed up with Reuels Art and Frame and Capital Ceramics to supply each participant with the needed materials for the competition.
“It’s a one of a kind event that Granite School District art students are fortunate to have the opportunity to compete in,” said Granite School District Fine Art Specialist, Tamara Burnside. “It’s amazing to see students start and complete a work of art in only three hours.”
Burnside said Art Night Live is a big confidence builder for students where they are not only given the opportunity to showcase their work, but also receive valuable feedback from local professional artists.
The public is invited to attend and admission is free, though donations to GEF are always greatly needed and appreciated. Donate online or learn more about the Foundation by visiting the organization’s website: granitekids.org.
