Fourteen of our HFA students participated in the regional Visual Art Scholastic Event (VASE) competition at East Central High School — with stellar results! Of those 14 students, every single one received the highest score of IV and seven received perfect scores of 60. One of the students, Paul A., was chosen to move onto the state competition. We are so proud of the students and their incredible artwork:
Jadelyn M, Gabriella W-M, Aliana G., Jemma T., Petra Q.
Paul A., Katelin B., Rosemary E.
Chloe S., Adah E., Dominick W., Gavynne R., Savannah D
The Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) has sponsored VASE since 1994. VASE is the only art event of its kind in the nation. Students are provided the opportunity to bring artworks created in their art classes to their regional event where they are interviewed by a certified juror who evaluates their work based on a standard based rubric and their understanding of the art processes involved in the development of their artwork. Only academically eligible high school students in grades 9-12 from throughout Texas can participate in VASE.
