Art Happenings

TPEA Art in the Park

On Saturday, Oct 2nd 18 RHS Art Club Teams participated in TPAEA Art in the Park sidewalk chalk competition at MediPark. Our teams worked tirelessly for over 4 hours to create original designs on their allotted spot of concrete. Hunter Lee, a senior who stepped in at the last minute won FIRST PLACE in the high school division and defended our streak of Randall wins for this competition! Hunter also won $100 and the highly coveted graffiti duck trophy. Junior Miana Bagavac walked away with $50 and the 2nd place prize for her cool and creepy design of a distorted face. All our teams did incredible artwork and had a really fun time despite being covered from head to toe in sidewalk chalk. Be sure to congratulate our winners if you see them and make plans to come cheer them on next year!

WOWW Winners

We are proud to announce THREE of our Randall High School artists won $100 in the 8th annual Window on a Wider World Student Art Show.

Please congratulate Catherine Atwood, Miana Bagavac and Graceson Carthel (all juniors)!

TPAEA Juried Show--December

32 of our RHS Art students were selected for the Texas Panhandle Art Education Association Winter Juried Show. These students were selected out of hundreds of entries from across Region 16 to represent the best of the best!

TPAEA Winter Juried Show, and out of hundreds of entries from all over Region 16 we had TWO Randall artists who won Best of Show cash awards!! Please congratulate juniors Janie Castillo and Graceson Carthel for their wins! Additionally, we had several students who sold their artwork - this is so exciting for them to be able to sell their work in a gallery and make money from their skills and talent. Thank you all for your continued support of our visual art program!!

VASE happening now!!

Each year, RHS Art students enter their artwork in a statewide competition, the Visual Art Scholastic Event, or VASE. The contest starts at the Regional level here in Amarillo and then advances to Area and State levels of competition. Last year, Randall had over 60 students compete in this event, with several moving up to the Area and State level. Our Art students are starting on their VASE pieces and we can't wait to show you what they create!

"The arts are not a frill. The arts are a response to our individuality and our nature, and help to shape our identity. What is there that can transcend deep difference and stubborn divisions? The arts. They have a wonderful universality. Art has the potential to unify. It can speak in many languages without a translator. The arts do not discriminate. The arts lift us up."
