The Art of the Easter Egg Hunt

By: Kate Scott/Freshman Writer

The winner of the Art Club’s Easter egg hunt is sophomore McKenna Thomas.

The contest, organized by the club’s advisor, Sarrah Dibble-Camburn, involved hunting for eggs made from famous artists’ works.

Dibble-Camburn says: “I heard students talking about how the elementary school always does fun things for each holiday. That inspired the idea for an art-themed Easter egg hunt.”

The Art Club helped sponsor the prize and spread the word of the hunt.

Twenty Easter “eggs” each with a featured piece of art was posted around the high school.

To participate, students needed to find the eggs and write down the name of the artist and the title of the artwork.

The ArtBeek 80 Colors Alcohol Markers Set was the prize awarded to sophomore McKenna for winning the Art Club’s Easter egg hunt.

The winner, received an ArtBeek 80 Colors Alcohol Markers Set.

Dibble-Camburn says the timing of the egg hunt is perfect because March is Youth Art Month.

Youth Art Month started in 1961 through The Art & Creative Materials Institute, Inc. (ACMI) and exists to promote art in ways that intertwine with youths’ everyday lives.

“The egg hunt was a great way to remind students of art,” says Dibble-Camburn.

She also says she would like to start a tradition where teachers participate and are also eligible for awards.

” I think the biggest thing about art is it stays with you forever and it doesn’t just end when school ends.”
