James Caldwell Art Students Receive Awards

James Caldwell High School recognizes the artistic accomplishments of three of its students. Congratulations are in order for Anastasia Ghering, Julia Fernandez and Sophia Ricci, who received a prestigious award in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition.
Teens in grades 7–12 apply in 29 categories of creative work. Submissions are juried by luminaries in the visual and literary arts, some of whom are past award recipients. Panelists look for works that best exemplify originality, technical skill and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.  Once again, the regional competition of Scholastic submissions has surpassed last year’s numbers, with a total of more than 4,200 submissions from more than 1,500 students.
Three students in the visual arts program at JCHS were among those chosen in this highly competitive event. Ghering won a Gold Key, the highest award, for an incredibly detailed-oriented pen and ink of a gothic building. Fernandez has won Honorable Mention for an oil painting of two women of history, done in spectacular color and modeling. Ricci has won both a Silver Key and Honorable Mention for an elaborate self-portrait and creative collage incorporating the art of dance. The honorees are exceptional artists and students, and are congratulated on this honor.
