Art LW Scholastic Art Awards

The Visual Arts Department is proud to announce that 5 students were awarded national awards at the 2018 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.  Gold medal recipients will have their artwork displayed in New York City.  Award winning students, their parents, and their art teacher are invited to attend the National Award Ceremony at Carnegie Hall in June. 

More information on the competition is available at www.artandwriting.org.  THIS IS A HUGE DEAL as only a small percentage of students actually receive national medals.  Former winners include Robert Redford, Sylvia Path, Andy Warhol, and Zac Posen.
