Art students from throughout the Granite School District (GSD) created works of art in under four hours. The annual Art Night Olympics Competition took place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Jan. 30 at Olympus High. Nearly 70 young artists (painters, sculptors and sketchers) participated in the timed competition. 
 
Artists participated from across eight high schools in the district. Each student was allowed to select the medium. In a span of four hours, students were instructed to “transform blank canvases and clumps of clay into works of art in the space of an afternoon,” said Ben Horsley, communications director for the district.
 
“The time crunch means students will have to be thorough and quick in order to catch the attention of the judges — local artists and Granite art teachers,” said Steven Powell, publications specialist for GSD.
 
The GSD website issued a press release, stating, “We have outstanding artists such as Al Rounds, who come and mentor the student artists.”
 
Al Rounds is a Utah-native artist. He mostly paints landscapes in watercolor. His gallery is located in downtown Salt Lake City inside the World Trade Center in City Creek.
 
Winners of the contest received cash awards. For additional photos, please visit the GSD news page online at http://www.graniteschools.org/granite-news/.
