We had a great exhibit of decorative painters at the NC State Fair this year. This was a great opportunity to show our community what wonderful art we are achieving with our decorative painting. Here are a few of our entries. Congratulations!

Dianne Seiber's entries! Look at all those ribbons!

Linda Frick's prize winning Santa from her local fair. Besides the blue ribbon she also received the sweepstakes in the professional decorative arts division!

Painting with Kathie George

We had a wonderful time painting with Kathie George. She has such fun techniques that she makes so easy.

North Carolina State Fair '08

Here is Linda Armstrong's
beautiful, ribbon winning rose painting from last year's state fair.
Our painters have been working on their holiday designs and have completed some delightful paintings. Here are Jan Dixon and Veronica Sharp with their Peppermints paintings. Good work!

Our students are entering their paintings in the NC State Fair Crafts and Hobbies exhibit! Be sure to check out this wonderful sampling of their paintings. You will find them in the Hobbies and Handicrafts building next to the Village of YesterYears. This is a great way to show others the quality of our paintings.
