Covington High School students of Covington, VA, participated in a special two-part art education residency made possible by the Alleghany Highland Arts and Crafts Center of Clifton Forge, VA, and the Virginia Commission for the Arts. Students utilized environmental science and fine arts to create large mixed media assemblages that will be installed eventually in their school. Students brainstormed together in class which informed their exploration of the donated recycled materials used to convey their awareness and sensitivity to how their immediate environment is affected by assorted changes such as climate change, industry development, economic challenges, and other factors...This experience gave voice to all participants and encouraged more awareness and a greater sense of responsibility within their respective communities. In the second part of the residency, students created art that celebrated the solutions and potentially positive changes that their actions and those within their community are promoting and making. They created new “parts” with clay and other materials to contribute to the overall project. This was also an opportunity for students to work with tools and materials collectively that they may typically not have had the opportunity to do. We are extremely proud of these young adults and want to thank them, as well as those individuals, businesses, and organizations that made this possible. Thank you, Tara S. Holl, VCA Artist in Residence

Well done.
