Central visual arts program hits milestone

THOMASVILLE — Thomas County Central is well known for the quality of its athletic programs, as well as its award-winning band. But did you know Central is also known for its visual arts program? 

Over the last six years, Central art students have garnered more than 1,000 art awards statewide?  That’s no misprint, according to Jocelyn Rivard.

Rivard said that Central art students have competed in juried art competitions all over the region from Marietta in the north to Tallahassee in the south. They have placed consistently in local and statewide events, including the “Plains, Peanuts and a President” postcard contest, GSNA (School Nutrition Association) poster contest,  Valdosta State High School Invitational and the Annual District Congressional Art Competition.

Locally, they participate in the Deep South Fair Youth Art Show, Cultural Center for the Arts Youth Art Competition, America Recycles poster contest, and the Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival. Central student art is currently on display at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C., the Plains High School Museum in Plains, Georgia and the Naval Submarine Base in Kings Bay.
