Congratulations to sophomore Zarin T. for having 2 works of art advance to the semi-final round of PS Art!
"Mandala" is a drawing that incorporates unique symbols, such as the stars, that hold significance in Zarin's life.
"Shoe" is a drawing that allowed Zarin understand how important it is to pay close attention to detail when it comes to art in order to make certain elements stand out more. It also helped her improve her use of value scales.
Congratulations to senior Kaylyn S. for her two works of art at Cuisine by Claudette.
