Area teens use art to express being 'Above the Influence'

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - Area teens are saying no to drugs and choosing an artistic way to show they are above the influence.

Saturday afternoon, Impact Futures hosted its Second Annual "Above the Influence" art show. High school students from around the area presented their own teen art expression project, showing how or why they are above the influence.

"We always have the high schools come out with their murals," said Darryl Hersey, a faith leader for Impact Futures. "We have some great ones, two will go to Washington D.C. to represent their murals. It's exciting that we have kids that are excited to be above the influence."

Those two winners will go to Washington D.C. for a national youth conference in February 2014.
