MPCS Students Honored at All-State Symposium Including a Second Place Winner

MPCS continues to climb in its ranking as an excelling school of the arts with multiple recognitions by various organizations. On March 1, MPCS represented nearly 10% of the state finalists selected out of over 350 high schools in Georgia at the All-State Art Symposium at Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia. 

As part of the honors, All-State Art Symposium invited eight MPCS art students to a day of art exploration after four MPCS student works were selected to be displayed at the event.

The following pieces were selected:

Annie Strickland, Fear of Failure
 

Chelsea Parada, Distracted Driver
 

Chelsea Parada, Socializing
 

Claire Finch, Conflicted

Out of 2400 entries, senior Chelsea Parada was selected as a second place winner for her piece Distracted Driver. Chelsea exclaimed how she was just so grateful for the experience. "It was an honor to be there, and I really enjoyed exploring different ways of creating art during the workshops!" 

"The annual All-State Art Symposium is dedicated to promoting and recognizing the creative talents of high school students from Georgia's school districts. The symposium's workshops, juried exhibition and other events provide high school students with cultural opportunities, develop advanced studio skills, and cultivate aesthetic appreciation while recognizing excellence in high school art education. Through the dynamic symposium, students, parents and teachers celebrate creativity and the symbiotic relationship of art and society" (Columbus State University.)
