Frisco ISD student artists have had their work displayed at the 2018 National Art Education Association Convention held March 22-24 in Seattle, Washington, and selected for exhibit in the Texas Governor's office.
Artwork by Gwen Sawyer of Frisco High School and Srinivas Devarajugetta of Scoggins Middle School was selected for the national display for Youth Art Month (YAM). Ryan David Li of Heritage High School had his YAM work chosen for the Governor’s Gallery, a select exhibit on view in the Governor's Office for a year.
“This is really big,” said Richard Oldham, director of fine arts for the school district.
Frisco ISD always sends excellent work to Austin to be displayed for Youth Art Month and has also had a student win the state YAM flag design contest. It is a credit to all the student artists and their instructors that these works have been recognized, Oldham said.
“Frisco ISD continues to produce student artists who amaze the community with their talent,” he said. “The District remains committed to educating the whole child and believes enabling students to hone their talents at a young age is vital to that process.”
