More than 400 artistically inclined students from 27 schools throughout Solano County showcased their work in the Solano County Student Art Faire, held Saturday at the Solano County Fairgrounds’ McCormack Hall.
The work ranged from computer art to sculptures to drawing to mixed media to painting to photography, with many students exhibiting their work for the first time. Ribbons were bestowed to students who placed first, second, third or won honorable mentions in each category. A Best in Show ribbon was given to one artist in each division, and every artist received a certificate just for taking part.
“The Solano Student Art Faire is something we look forward to every year,” Lisette Estrella-Henderson, Solano County superintendent of schools, said in a statement. “It is a special time to bring students, parents, teachers, and the community together to honor the work students have completed over the school year and celebrate the importance of the arts in education.”
