On November 16, Durant High School hosted their fall art show, “Cirque Du Art.” The Durant National Art Honors Society (NAHS) brainstormed and prepped this show since October, and the outcome was better then they had expected.

The personalized decorations and many different mediums of art by the art students at Durant. There were many canvases painted with oil paint or acrylic paint, ceramic pieces that were made to show artists imaginative side, and wire and wood décor made by the NAHS.

Raven Clark, senior and Durant national art honors society’s president, said “I feel like it went really well, I think it’s really exciting that the art community can get out here and even if we are just in a school, everybody’s coming and enjoying the show.” Raven was very happy at the amount of people that showed up and was very proud of the outcome of the event.

The exhibits were stunning. There were two rooms that were filled with ceramic projects, paintings, paper projects which showed how creative and talented the students in the art program really are.

I asked Hayley King, junior, who is also in Mr. Bowers 2-D art class and had two unnamed pieces in the art show. “I really like the piece that has all of the ceramic butterflies coming down from the ceiling,” she said, “I don’t know why, I’m just drawn to it.” Hayley thinks that the art show is important because it helps showcase what the art students hare capable of. “I think this is one of our best ones.” King said, referring to the art show.

The art show really showed the student body what the art program has been up to since the beginning of the year, there was many positive things said from teachers and students, the comment box was overflowing with positive comments!
