Elementary art students are notorious for their unbounded creativity. In Frisco ISD visual art classrooms, you’ll find students exploring their artistry under the guidance of teachers who value individuality and the process more than a singular
matching outcome from all students in the class.
Each spring, elementary visual art teachers submit a limited number of pieces of student art to be rated at the Texas Elementary Art Meet (TEAM). This standards-based elementary art event uses the quality guidelines of VASE, the middle and high school
competition, while considering the unique needs of young artists.
This year, teachers submitted 125 artworks across the 42 elementary schools. Incredibly, 112 of the 125 entries received exemplary ratings of a 3 in the Texas Elementary Art Meet.
Eight students received an additional Platinum Medal and were named Top of TEAM, the highest honor awarded in the competition. Top of TEAM students represent the top 10% of all artwork submitted across the state!
Congratulations to the Frisco ISD students who have been honored as 2022 Top of TEAM winners by the Texas Art Educators Association.
