On March 7, 18 students attended the Friends University Art Challenge.  This competition is unique in that most of the schools who attend are from the greater Wichita area and are much larger in size compared to Moundridge.  Most of the schools have specialized art programs in photography, ceramics and 2D art, each being led by a different teacher.  The quantity and quality of artwork at this event makes it hard to place in any of the juried categories or win any challenges.  This was by far our most successful year yet with 5 awards.  Leanna Davis took first for her colored pencil drawing, Erin Miller took two first place prizes for her prints and her jewelry and Kaylie Penner took 2nd place for her oil painting.  Caleb Allen, Kodi Allen, Erin Miller, Rebecca Ullom-Minnich and Kaylie Penner all served on the Junior Mural Team earning honorable mention for the Mural Masterpiece Challenge.  While the judges evaluate and determine winners from the schools’ art booths, the students participate in various challenges in another area. 

 The Mural Masterpiece is by far the most popular event with approximately 30 teams and 90 students competing.  The challenge is to take a “masterpiece” and transform it into a current popularized issue.  The Junior team chose childhood obesity as their current issue and Rene’ Magritte’s, “Son of Man” as their masterpiece.   Students plan designs and layout ahead of time but only have 2 ½ hours to complete the onsite chalk mural.   I am very proud of all our Moundridge students who competed and worked hard getting ready for the event.  It is fun going to different events and seeing our talented students’ artwork on display.  League Art on April 2nd is our next 

competition at Inman High school followed by the McPherson County Showcase for grades 6-12 on April 9-13.  

The MHS FFA judging teams competed in Hutchinson on December 13th.  The greenhand team placed 8th out of 22 teams with Luc Scarlett and Dylan Junke both in the top 25 (other team member included Dab Scott).
