We were delighted to learn this year that one of our graduated seniors, Ann Beasley, had artwork chosen to grace the front of the 2010 NAEA Christmas card. Her image is a kaleidascope image done on Photoshop CS and was also included in her AP portfolio.
This past year, both art teacher, Melissa Walker and Senior, Ashley Farlow, were featured in the Aug/Sep 2010 issue of School Arts magazine. Ashley won a Gold Key at the NC Eastern Regional Scholastic Awards with the Black and White image, and is currently a freshman at the Savanna School of Art and Design.

One of our current seniors, Taylor L., (on the right) had artwork chosen for the NC Legislative exhibit during the 2009-2010 school year. Her acrylic painting of an old truck was also purchased during the exhibit.
In 2009, four RHS students had visual journal pages published in the book "Collaborative Art Journals", by L.K. Ludwig. Even though our school name was mispelled in the book, we are still very proud of our art students!
In 2008, Mrs Walker was excited to learn that 3 of her Visual Journal pages would be included in the book "1000 Artist Journal Pages", by Dawn D Sokol. Mrs. Walker started teaching journaling to her students over 8 years ago after seeing the book "Spilling Open" by Sabrina Ward Harrison. She is still creating journal pages and will be included in the upcoming exhibit, ll Libro: Art of the Handmade Book, a group show at Barton College Art Galleries. She will also be helping to teach a journaling workshop at the college.
