IMG_6114Tuesday evening August 29 was the opening of the All-County Youth Art Show, an annual event sponsored by the Cultural Council of Georgetown. The Georgetown School was very well represented.

R. Scott Jacob, executive director of the Cultural Council, welcomed members, guests, parents and students to a lovely reception at 637 Front Street. He awarded five scholarships providing funds for private study. Three went to art students from The Georgetown School: Sara Green, Ryleigh Neubauer, and our new student, Avery Rose Higgins.

Sara won one of the top scholarship prizes and also received purchase offers for one of her pieces. Ryleigh, a rising seventh grader, received a scholarship and kudos for her talent and hard work. Avery Rose won a scholarship and a monetary award. Scott complimented all the students and said that the judge, Ruth Cox, was extremely impressed with the outstanding quality of the students’ pieces.


Students of The Georgetown School who also showed art work included: Sara Cyr, Langston Rockhill and Isabella Neubauer.

The Georgetown School would like to thank art teacher Kathy Patrick for her fine work inspiring all of these young artists. Thanks also go to all who came out to support our students and for the wonderful opening reception by the Cultural Council of Georgetown!
