  • Students from the Sussex Academy of Arts and Sciences in Georgetown recently received awards in the Georgetown Arts & Flowers Spring Art Contest. Students created "Springtime" works of art, taking inspiration from the community to create works that represented spring. Ten students received awards.
    Claire Denney was awarded first place. She used string as her medium to create a group of three spring flowers, intricately weaving string back and forth to shape petals and create the look of grass. Second place was awarded to Sarah Ashmore, who chose to use oil pastels for her medium, creating a girl smelling a tulip. Kathryn Van Pelt placed third with her mixed medium of melted crayons and water colored flowers.
    Sussex Academy was also awarded three honorable mentions: Samara Clark, Kaylee Valasquez, and Sarah Bouni. Works done by Dominic Longo, Katie Maher, Mallory Jones, and Kathleen Yeary were also selected and are on display at the Georgetown Library. The works will be displayed the entire month of April, where the public can vote for their favorite.
