It’s been said that people are least creative when racing the clock.
Don’t tell that to the aspiring Monets and Michelangelos from Alta, Jordan, Corner Canyon, and Hillcrest high schools who recently completed in ArtStock, a timed art-creation contest held annually at Jordan High.
The event, which requires students to create an original piece of 2-D or 3-D art in four hours or less, gives our students “a chance to see what other kids are doing and how they do it,” said District Arts Specialist Sharee Jorgensen. They also learn pacing and refinement skills, she said.
Students from Jordan, Alta, and Hillcrest won major awards at the event.
