The Burning Truth: Scholastic Art Winners

Jason sits down with 3 of our Scholastic Art Winners to talk about high school and art. Veteran Art and Photo Teacher Ms Davidson said of the Awards, “our very own Wakefield Art students claim a whopping 267 individual Awards! This is up from our 208 awards granted last year. We also picked up 16/16 Portfolio awards! (Portfolios are a thematic body of 8 works that is a visual culmination of 4 years of Art and is limited to Seniors.)
In total, our students won 85 individual Gold Keys, 79 Silver Keys, and 103 Honorable Mentions. They also won 15 Gold Keys and 1 Silver Key for their Art portfolios.
Carmina Lopez also received the prestigious American Visions Award for her painting, Metal with Floral Sheet. There are 5 American Visions Awards chosen each year from the Scholastic Gold Key winners and are considered Best in Show!”

Here is more information with a list of winners.

Way to go, artists! Go see their work hanging in Central Library from now until March 31st.
