Two TMI Episcopal students participated in the regional VASE (Visual Arts Scholastic Event), held Feb. 23 and John Paul Stevens High School, a juried art show for high-school students sponsored by the Texas Art Education Association.
Freshman Sara Homma, who submitted “Kiyo” in graphite and pastel pencil, and senior Kristina Samuel, who entered “Multifaceted,” an oil painting, both were interviewed and judged on the quality of their work.
Homma’s piece was one of 161 selected to move on to state competition, out of a total of 1,748 student artworks shown. Samuels also excelled, achieving a near-perfect score on the interview section.
State VASE will be held April 26-27 at San Marcos High School.
