Youth Art Month 2024

A Big Splash of Color at PACA’s Youth Art Show

A colorful sea of students and their families visited the Youth Art Month show and reception last week, where artwork from budding artists was on display at the Pickens Recreation Center. The show, sponsored and organized by Pickens Arts & Cultural Alliance, featured work from Tate, Harmony, and Hill City elementary schools, Jasper Middle School, Pickens Junior High School, Pickens High School, Mountain Ed Charter High School, and Mountain Laurel Academy. “It was wonderful to see so many people come through,” said PACA President Amelia McIntyre, who estimated there were around 300 in attendance and it was their largest YAM event yet. “There was such a good response, and kids really seemed to enjoy showing off their artwork to their friends and family. PACA is honored to host this and support budding artists.” PACA awarded monetary prizes for 1st ($200), 2nd ($150), and 3rd ($100) place winners for the high school levels in public school, as well as for the charter and private schools. Junior high student winners received gift cards for Michaels arts and crafts store. Winners on those levels were: Pickens High School: 1st – Emme Hale; 2nd – Dreama Goode; 3rd – Cassie Foster Pickens Junior High School: 1st – Dylan Frame; 2nd – Leslie Lanford; 3rd – Rebecca Denney Non-Traditional Schools (Mountain Ed/Mountain Laurel Academy): 1st – Allison “Nikki” Parker; 2nd – Emi Deetlefs; 3rd – Rachel Shoeneman As part of Youth Art Month, PACA also made a donation to each school’s art program.

2022 Summer Art Program

This summer, PACA brought art to different parts of the community in Pickens for a seven-week art program. The summer program team was consisted of Rome High School Art Teacher, Cole Miller, PACA vice president, Debby Helton, and UNG Art Education Student, Megan Stancil. The program worked closely with the local Boys and Girls of North Georgia. Summer camp students in grades K-5 participated in various crafts including collage, painting, clay pinch pots and more. Teen students in grades 6-9 proposed their own art projects and worked under the guidance and assistance of our summer program team. PACA also partnered with the local Pickens Senior Center. Senior citizens created original watercolor works, acrylic paintings, greeting cards, and decorative bricks and rocks. Additionally, PACA provided free art this summer at the Second Saturday Event held on Main Street.
