Four Tri-City students will be honored Friday during the the 42nd annual Superintendent’s High School Art Show in Olympia.
The art show is held by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Washington Art Education Association to celebrate high school artists whose work won at regional shows this spring and was selected for the state competition.
Chancelor Perez of Richland High School received the Superintendent’s Award for Structure. Chancelor’s teacher is Shawn Murphy.
Audrey Branham of Kennewick High School received the Professional Educator Standards Board Award for Daily Life Batik. Audrey’s teacher is Suzanne Ard.
Kirsha Johnson of Kamiakin High School received the Association of Washington School Principals award for Owl. Kirsha’s teacher is Victoria Gravenslund.
Yebel Mosqueda of Hanford High School won the ArtsEd Washington Award for Nature’s Fire. Yebel’s teacher is April Ottey.
The artists’ work will be bought for $200 each so they can become part of permanent collections. The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Washington Art Education Association were joined in that effort by the State Board of Education, Professional Educators Standards Board, Washington Association of School Administrators, Washington State School Directors’ Association, ArtsEd Washington and Association of Washington School Principals.
