Students have artwork displayed at State Capitol

Two Denton ISD students were selected to have their artwork displayed in Austin as part of the Texas Art Education Association’s Youth Art Month Capitol Celebration, marking the ninth consecutive year at least one district student has featured art in the state capital.


The students had their artwork selected from just 99 pieces that were selected to hang in the State Capitol building as well as the Bob Bullock Museum. These students included:

Student Lauren Davis
Student McKenna Lange
Adkins Elementary - Lauren Davis, second grade
My Scarecrow
Kelley McGee is the art teacher at Adkins. 
Stephens Elementary - McKenna Lange, third grade
The Blue Dog Kind
Megan Trammell is the art teacher at Stephens. 

In addition, Lauren Davis received the distinction of being selected by the First Lady of Texas Cecilia Abbott as one of the 10 artworks chosen to hang in the Governor's business office for the year. Youth Art Month is a national celebration in the United States, with thousands of schools and entities across the country participating in special events designed to recognize the artistic capabilities of students and children.


TAEA consistently provides avenues for children across the state to showcase their work and promotes the importance of promoting art education and students’ artwork within their communities.
