Nearly 30 high school visual artists will advance to the Texas Art Education Association’s annual Visual Art Scholastic Event, a state-level contest, in April.

Students competed at the area level earlier in the spring. Ninety-five percent of Mansfield ISD artists scored a 4, the highest rating, at the event.  

Student artists who receive a 4 rating will earn a state medallion, an All-State Artist title, and be eligible for the Gold Seal Award. Jurors select artworks that represent the goals of VASE and exemplary examples of concept, technique, craftsmanship and creativity in student artwork.  Students selected as Gold Seal winners will receive a Gold State Medallion, and their artwork will be exhibited in various venues across the state, culminating with the Gold Seal Exhibition at the annual TAEA Fall Conference. Last year, two Mansfield ISD students earned Gold Seals.

Also at the state event, students will participate in hands-on workshops, sketching opportunities and compete for scholarship money.

Twenty-seven students will participate in the state conference on April 26-27 in San Marcos:
