Arts Expo Pastel Competition
High school art students from several Quad Cities schools competed in a pastel match on a glorious Saturday, May 28. Each team created an 8 x 8 ft mural in chalk and pastels. Murals will be on display in the MidCoast at Bucktown Gallery in Davenport, Iowa, for the month of June.
Stacey provided her group from Moline High School with light direction, donuts, and hard pastels from Hobby Lobby. Other teams had tents, well-planned and gridded compositions, knee pads, brushes, and even T-shirts. Stacey is hoping that her team wins one of the cash awards because the students really need more canvasses. The awards ceremony is on Friday, June 24, at 6 pm.
