Award Winning Youth Artist

Last year Alana Adams, Senior Director of Education, worked with over 100 middle and high school students with disabilities through the Arts Center's VSA arts enrichment program.

In May, Adams submitted artwork from each the students to the VSA’s "Yo Soy…Je Suis…I Am…Motivated to Create" children’s art competition. One of her students, Jimmy Kovalcik from May River High School, has been selected as one of this year’s winning artists from this international competition!

Kovalcik's original artwork will be shipped to D.C. and the Kennedy Center will be displaying his work at an exhibition at the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C. in March, 2019. Government representatives will be invited to attend the exhibition’s opening reception to view the artwork and the Department of Education may want to retain this artwork for permanent exhibition in Washington, D.C.

It's an honor to have the Arts Center and Beaufort County represented in this exhibition! Kovalcik's award-winning chalk batik, an abstract rendition of his school, is above. Congratulations Jimmy!
