ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty and Lee County students were honored for their creativity. The Kiwanis Club of Dougherty County awarded ribbons to middle and high school students during their 29th annual Student Art Exhibit.

Public, private and home schooled students are invited to submit their work every year for the contest. Sunday parents, students and teachers filled the Willson Auditorium at the Albany Museum of Art to praise their masterpieces.

 "Primarily it is 2-D mediums. That can range from pencil, charcoal, pastel, oil pastels," said Dougherty Schools Art Director, Betsy Bridger.

"Art teaches you critical thinking skills that you might not get from other subject matter. It teaches you to be creative and to think outside of the box," said Kiwanis Member, Kristen Caso.

The pieces are on display at the Albany Museum of Art and will later be on display at the Albany Mall.
