Co-Lin Student Art Show

The Lincoln County Public Library is currently hosting the annual student art show from Copiah Lincoln Community College. The public is invited to attend a reception for the students on Thursday, April 17 from 4-6 p. m.

This 2008 show exhibits many techniques and mediums of expression including paint, pencil, clay and 3-D made from found objects.

Co-Lin offers a variety of studio classes that serve the foundations requirements for art majors transferring to an Art institution or senior college. Most students enrolled in these studio classes are not majoring in art, but all students are given the same consideration and learning experience.

At Co-Lin students are taught the basics of design and techniques for the specific areas of creativity. “Drawing and Painting classes incorporate lessons in working from life studies,” says instructor Janet Campbell Smith. “This allows the students to experience subjects first-hand and to find their own personal expression while learning the basics of capturing 3 dimensional subjects on flat surfaces. Design classes teach the basics of design, composition and study of color relationships. Three dimensional design is not neglected as the ceramic work and sculptural forms show. Ceramics students learn all the basics techniques of working with clay. They also are encouraged to be creative.”

In the recent 2008, 21st Annual Mississippi Junior/Community College Art Instructors Association Competition, Co-Lin students competed with eleven other schools. From a total of 500 works submitted and exhibited, Co-Lin students received four awards. These included: Cory Holmes – 2nd place in Painting for “Blind Conundrum,” Charlotte E. King – 1st place in 3D Design for “Giant Stick Pins,” Brittany Jenkins – Honorable Mention in Painting for “Cemetery,” and Rachel Walters – Honorable Mention in Ceramics for “Gaming Form.”
