Blue Ridge Arts Council in Seneca, SC, Features Works by Oconee County Students

The Blue Ridge Arts Council (BRAC) in Seneca, SC, is presenting Oconee Schools K-12 Student Exhibit, on view at the Blue Ridge Arts Center through Apr. 15, 2011.

In partnership with the School District of Oconee County, the Blue Ridge Arts Council proudly presents the annual exhibit of artwork produced by our students in grades K-12.

Through Apr. 15, the Arts Center will be alive and overflowing with more than 400 pieces of vibrant 2-D and 3-D art works providing a feast for the eyes. Every year at this time, in celebration of the nationally observed Youth Art Month, the Blue Ridge Arts Center is filled with the vivid colors and amazing creations of K-12 students in Oconee County schools, selected by their art teachers. Visitors to the exhibit are amazed at the students’ talents and skills. Part of this can be attributed to excellent arts education provided by Oconee County schools. This has been evidenced through high ratings received by local students in regional and state competitions, as well as the number of students from the county selected to attend the SC Governor’s School for the Arts.

BRAC is also pleased to welcome McDonald's of Clemson and Oconee County as a new sponsor for this year’s event. Our area’s McDonald’s lends their support to the community in many beneficial ways. Hospice of the Foothills, The Oconee Red Cross, Collins Children’s Home, Upstate Special Olympics, the Knights of Columbus, and the Terrific Kid’s program all benefit from McDonald’s continued support.
