AISD student artists nab record number of awards

Friday, March 15, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Austin Independent School District picked up a record number of awards at the statewide Visual Arts Scholastic Event on March 2. Honors went to a whopping 857 pieces of art created by Austin high school students; 95 of the works were selected to advance to the state competition. AISD students participate in VASE each year, where they are judged on the merits of their art, an interview and their artist statements. Naturally, you’re longing to see some of the work of these young artists. An exhibition of works by AISD student artists will be on display from March 25 to April 18 at the AISD Performing Arts Center, 1500 Barbara Jordan Blvd., open Mon.-Fri., 8 a.m.-7 p.m.
