Second-graders at Jackson's Southview Elementary and a number of Jackson High School (JHS) students recently took part in a collaborative art project, which involved the creation and recreation of monsters straight from the imagination of the youngsters.

JHS art instructor Shaun Gentry told The Telegram on Thursday, March 1 that he recently asked the second-grade teachers at Southview if they would be interested in having their students design their own monsters via drawing and coloring. From there, Gentry took the drawings and allowed his JHS art students to pick their favorites and recreate them in their own style.

Gentry estimates there were roughly 65 second-graders that took part in the project, which equates to over 120 finished pieces once the high-schoolers finished their projects.

All of the monsters are now proudly on display within the Southview cafetorium.

Aside from drawings, Gentry stated some of the JHS participants utilized different types of media such as polymer clay or 3D models.

"The high school kids absolutely loved it," Gentry said. "They can't get enough of it."

Given the project's popularity, Gentry said he is currently collaborating with Northview Elementary for the next installment. He plans to also reach out to Westview as well, but given his hectic schedule and events such as JHS plays and musicals, he believes that will have to wait until next school year. Ultimately, Gentry would like to make this project an annual one, with the finished pieces being displayed at the JHS Spring Arts Festival each May.

"It's a way for the second-graders to see someone else take their idea and expand on it a little bit more," Gentry explained. "It will also maybe help get them excited about the art program as they move up."
