“We need creative thinkers and problem solvers in our society, and I believe art will lead students down this path,” she said.

Kim Harrison, a member of the Gulf Alliance for Local Arts (GALA) added, “It’s a chance for kids to shine.”

A not-for-profit organization, GALA is dedicated to advancing and supporting the arts and all its forms to promote education, communication and appreciation throughout Gulf County.

Harrison went on to say that additional student art was recently sent to Tallahassee for an art show and that six students who contributed to the gallery were selected by teachers to take part in the Student Art Day event during this week’s Plein Air Paint-Out.

During the event, taking place in Carrabelle, these students will paint one-on-one with a participating professional artist and receive personalized instruction.
