Many inspiring artists traveled to school on Feb 17 to compete in the Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE), an art competition sponsored by the Texas Art Education Association (TAEA). Many of these are artistic students that entered brought back several awards and more important experience.

Two of the artists were Priscila Martinez and Claire Humphreys who both said it was a great experience.

“It help me knowing how mach a I can change,” said Humphreys. ” And how much I can grow in my art.”

Martines agreed.

“It made me get out of my comfort zone,” said Martines. “It also made me try new thing and grow better as a artist.”

Both girls said that they were proud of their art.

“I painted various oceanic pics,” said Martines. “I made coral basically.”

Humphreys also won an award for her piece.

“I made a leaf pot,” said Humphreys. “That had varied leaves on it.”

For all of those who are not sure about competing next year, art teacher Gina Mock said students should.

“You should go to VASE because it a challenge,” said Mock. “Every time you go, you challenge yourself to get better at your art.”
