High school art students were given the chance to participate in sketch day where students from area high schools select a building to sketch, draw or paint. The annual event is sponsored by the Jefferson City Art Club.

Students have a choice in what medium to use. At the end of the day, art is collected to be displayed for judging, after which the results are made known and ribbons awarded Wednesday at Capital Arts.

About 40 students from Jefferson City High School, Helias, Calvary Lutheran High School, Jefferson City Academic Center and Simonsen 9th Grade Center participated in Sketch Day.

Simonsen ninth grade student Lucy Washburn is seated in the shade of Encore on East Capitol Avenue as she sketches out a likeness of First Christian Church across the street at 327 E. Capitol Ave. High school art students participated in a sketch day Monday, May 6, 2019, when students from area high schools selected a building to sketch, draw or paint. The annual event is sponsored by the Jefferson City Art Club.
