This weekend, many Charlotte Christian students submitted their artwork to the Annual Festival in the Park. Located uptown in Freedom Park, the festival is a yearly gathering of the community and city of Charlotte to celebrate our vast artistic culture and to recognize brilliant local artists. The festival has an exhibit for each school in the surrounding area. As patrons walk around the park, they will see signs that will direct them to their school gallery.

The Upper School Studio Art Honors class took a different approach to the display this year. With all of the destruction and devastation caused by the recent slew of hurricanes hitting the east coast, our students used their creative skills to make visual prayers for those in need. The display was filled with collages covered by everything from flags, to crosses, to words of encouragement for Texas. We hope these painted prayers touch God’s heart and will inspire others to donate and get involved to help our fractured country.

Our school received some awards at the festival. Junior, Andrew Knotts pulled in an honorable mention for his Houston collage. Seniors, Regan Jackson, Caroline Doyle, and Dallas Thomley in AP Studio Art placed third, second, and first place for their visual artwork. Overall, CCS had a very successful year at Festival in the Park. Thank you to everyone who came out to support our artists!
