The students in the art department worked long and hard on their pieces for the NCCSA Fine Arts Competition. They chose their categories about a month after school began, and had until after Christmas to complete the projects. After they were turned in, suggestions were made and the final selections were made in February. Some students had to re-work, add, or subtract to their pieces for the final competition, and wow, what excitement with 13 places, the most of any school in the competition. Congratulations and to God be the glory!
