This weekend, our school took 70 art students to our regional Visual Art and Scholastic Event. Out of the 70, we had 2 state winners! Attached is a photo of one of the winning sculpture works. This student received a perfect score from the judges and created a meaningful work based on a Teaching For Artistic Behaviors inspired lesson from the beginning of this year. This student work illustrates the student’s identity, love for her family and cultural background. The cup represents her family’s connection to the coffee industry in Mexico and the words on the outside are her own reflection on how her family has influenced her life. The entire work is made from paper plates.
