On Saturday, February 22, art students from North Lamar High School traveled to Region 8 Service Center in Pittsburg, Texas, to compete in the Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE).
Twenty students competed with a total of 30 art pieces entered. Twenty of the entries earned a medal with a superior rating of a 4. Of those superior ratings, seven received a perfect score.
Kelsey Beach was selected to compete in the state event with her painting entitled Draining. Due to COVID‐19, the state VASE competition will use an electronic judging process. It was originally to be held at San Marcos High School. No teachers, students or state VASE staff will work onsite.
Others who competed were Eliliana Aguilar, Felicity Arnold, Devin Balazs, Maycie Beshirs, Hayden Brannan, Gracie Chaverria, Elizabeth Clark, Kade Cooper, Sierra Eden, Spencer Escobedo, Kelsey Garrett, Canae Hamilton, Ryan Hutchings, Brea Icenogle, Kenneth Mayes, MaKenna Morton, Samantha Salgado, Kiersten Shoemate and Allison Wood.
“It was a fantastic day and as always the students from North Lamar High School set an outstanding example and represented the school with pride,” said NLHS art instructor Brandi Peel.”
