“Great creations start with a creative mind”

EXHIBITIONS & PUBLIC ART

Our students were recently granted the opportunity to participate in a local grant project called Artsy Alley. A strong team of 6th – 8th grade students completed two large murals representing Wilson’s agricultural history. The murals are located downtown between the Centre Brick parking lot beside the new Whirligig Station redevelopment project and Barnes Street next to P.L. Woodard Hardware Store.

We enter many art competitions throughout the year, and have had past students win Gold Key awards in the National Scholastic Arts Awards.

Students in our elementary program have won the “NC Farm to School Calendar Art Competition.” We regularly seek opportunities to participate in public art projects and contests.
