CCS Art Festival Participants – 2019

Crossroads Christian School was proud to participate in the 2019 Southeast District ACSI Art Festival. This year’s event was held on Friday, March, 22 and was hosted by Faith Christian School in Rocky Mount, NC. This is an annual event held in districts across the US within the American Christian Schools International organization. We competed with approximately 150 students in grades 3-12 from five different schools in southeast North Carolina.

Students participated in their choice of creative color mixing, painting, and photography workshops. Some of the categories entered this year included acrylic paintings, graphite pencil drawings, photography, soft pastels, mixed media, and more.  Professional artists from local colleges and schools in the Nash County area reviewed each entry. They were evaluated on Design and Composition, Creativity, Technique, and Presentation. We competed in love and honor to our heavenly father. The students were directed to think about (and portray through their creative efforts) beauty and excellence that will reflect the glory and beauty of God and His creation. –  Psalm 99:2-3, Philippians 4:8

Congratulations to the following CCS students who received 4 out of 10 highest honor awards given to the “Best of Show” in each grade category.
