Tonight at the Dryades Public Market, their work will be framed, show, and sold - and the students receive the proceeds from the work.

"It's a chance for them to display their class work," Scott says. "Their classwork turns into art work. This is just a series of different assignments that we've been working on all year."

"I want it to pop out. I want it to show who I really am," Diamond Powell, one of the students, says of her work.

Brianne Grayer, another KCCA student says, "I'm trying to make it like, not look like what other people would do, so I try to go out of the box and think of something extraordinary to do."
