Recently, Alex Peavy, 8th grader, was chosen to represent Santa Rosa County in the upcoming Art in the Capitol Competition in Tallahassee early next year.  Alex has been in the school’s art program from 6th grade through 8th grade and growing every year. Ms. Rachel Hughes, GBMS art teacher, says, “…Alex is maximizing her hues, values, and intensities with acrylics, something she said that she could never do. It has been a pleasure to see her overcome that challenge.”

The Art in the Capitol Competition takes place over several months with the start of the viewing session being in January while the end of the session is in March. Art classes throughout the state can participate in the competition beginning in early autumn. Art teachers send the best pieces to a legislator in early November to go into the exhibition at the Capitol in Tallahassee.

Ms. Hughes also says, “She [Alex] has a natural talent for drawing, exhibiting a constant, fluid movement in her technique.” In addition to Alex’s art, Ms. Hughes also sent a piece by Katrina Le to be considered; however, it was not chosen to go onto the exhibit in the Capitol. Ms. Hughes is proud that one of her students was able to represent GBMS and Santa Rosa County for the state level of this art competition.

Katrina Le’s piece was not picked, but it’s vibrancy and overall nice appeal still makes it great work.
