Perry High School Visit Reflects Regional Impact of Turner Center

By March 25, 2019 No Comments

Nearly two dozen students from Perry High School, Georgia, in grades 10 through 12, visited the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts on March 22, 2019. The AP students and teacher Cathy Heller traveled by bus to Valdosta to view the Youth Art Month exhibition and more specifically the 2019 VSU Invitational High School Art Competition in the center’s galleries. While at the arts center, students were treated by staff to a Black-Out Poetry workshop, which taught the students the concept that art that effectively tells a story is compelling, interesting and engaging. Heller and her students traveled more than 125 miles to visit the art center, evidence of the regional impact the Turner Center has on the local and state arts industry.
