Each year Macon East art students from grades K5 through 12 participate in the school art show displaying their best works from the year under the instruction of art teacher, Tiffany Ala. Entries in collage/mixed media, drawing (black/white and color), painting, photography, printmaking, and water base are judged by an independent panel of local artists in five grade categories. Senior, Christian Steyer was the overall Best of Show winner sweeping the black and white category with four ribbons and taking 1st place in painting. An exceptionally talented artist, Christian will be attending Savannah College of Art and Design in the fall. Other Best of Show winners were:
