University School of Jackson

Visual Art

Students of all ages at USJ are given ample opportunities to showcase and refine their artistic talents through our Visual Arts programs. The visual arts department challenges our students’ talents and showcases them throughout our school and the community through art exhibits and competitions. Arts at The U, our annual arts exhibit sponsored by the Arts Guild, allows for all lower, middle, and upper school students to display their artwork to our fellow USJ family. Community competitions such as the Bank of Jackson Art Show, the West TN Regional Student Art Competition, and more, give students the opportunity to step out of their comfort zone and compete against students from other schools. Our Upper School students also regularly attend the Governor’s School for the Arts, a rigorous four-week residency summer program, in which students admitted show true talent and motivation. Through these events, our students are encouraged to improve upon their skills and work diligently to achieve their artistic goals.

 

Congratulations to Taylor Sallee, 6th grade and Olivia Welch, 7th grade, for having artwork accepted into the West Tennessee Art Education juried art show. They were honored at a reception at the West Tennessee Regional Art Center in Humboldt on Sunday, January 19. Their artwork will be on display until February 27.
