ICYMI - On February 25, two Quitman High School senior Art students competed in the Region 7 Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE), in Tyler. Both students brought artworks to be judged and to complete interviews about their work. Lorena Serrano received a 4 (top rating) and a gold medal for her acrylic painting "L.S. Motor." It was Lorena's first chance to participate in an in-person VASE event, as the last few years were virtual due to Covid. Bonnie Vander Schaaf brought two different works. Her drawing, "A Fantastical History of Sisterhood," received a 4 and a gold medal. Her oil painting, "21st Century Fishing," received a 4, a gold medal, and also an Area medal which qualified her for the State VASE Competition in San Marcos in late April. This is the second time Bonnie has qualified for the state level event. As a Freshman she earned an Area medal but the State event was canceled due to the Covid shutdown of Spring 2020. This year the event is back on schedule and she will be able to see her work on display with the top artworks from the whole state of Texas. Congratulations to both girls for their outstanding performance!
