I just finished judging the Minnesota Scholastic Art Award (MSAA). The MSAA is a statewide regional affiliation of the National Scholastic Art Awards, which offers recognition of creative teenagers and scholarship opportunities for graduating high school seniors. Every year it’s hosted by MCAD, Minneapolis College of Art and Design. It was an enormous job looking at 1,232 pieces of artwork, made by 7th through 12th graders separated into seven categories: Painting, Drawing, Ceramics-glass, Printmaking, Mixed Media, Photography and Video/Film/Animation. The Gold Key winning artwork will then continue on to the National Scholastic Art Award competition in New York.

It’s amazing the amount of quality artwork that was submitted. As an art teacher, that also, submits students work into competition, I regretted every time I didn’t give an award, because I know that the teacher had confidence in the student’s artwork, and the student was proud of what they made. But Minnesota has a wealth of very talented young artists. I am deeply honored to have juried this year this year’s Scholastic Art Award.

These are a few of my favorites!  Good Luck Guys!!!
