IMS Students Attend Art Competition, Receive Honors
Yujin ’20, Wade ’20, Sophia ’21, Alysa ’22, and Marisin ’22 had their work on display at the competition, which attracts a highly talented pool of artists from across the state. Yujin’s work received a “Gold Key” award—a first place honor—and the American Vision Award, which is the highest regional award to be given to one writer or artist from each region. Her work will go on to compete at the national level. Our artists came away with a combined five awards.
Mr. Visockis, IMS Art Department Chair, expressed his pride in our students. “Students take risks by entering their work into this competition,” he said. “It’s not easy to put yourself out there and have your work judged among other students and peers. We’re proud of them for taking the initiative, for putting hard work into their pieces, and for going the extra distance. It speaks to their drive as artists.”
