Savannah Jackson, eighth grade student at Holston Middle School, is getting her artistic talent showcased around East Tennessee.

Currently, her art is on display until 2025 at WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge as a part of its Smoky Mountain Youth Art gallery. It will also be displayed in the public libraries.

Mom Lela Jackson recounts how Savannah always knew she wanted to be an artist from her first kindergarten project, “What I want to be when I grow up.”

For Savannah, art is a perfect way to channel her focus as her parents discovered she had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) as a young child. Mom says that when Savannah found her gift of artistic talent, it really gave her a whole new outlet.

Savannah continued her artistic talents throughout elementary school, winning the Dogwood Arts Synergy Art Competition as a fourth grade student.

Mom says when Savannah is not sketching an art piece, she can likely be found creating paper dragons and other fun crafts.

She’s on the yearbook staff at HMS and earned “most artistic” by her peers for their eighth grade superlatives.

Savannah has big dreams for her art and can’t wait for future opportunities that allow the world to see them.
