So proud of my AP student, Francesca Norman (11th), who had two pieces accepted into the Young American Talent Juried Show!! This downtown show was open to the public for the month of March displaying 100 pieces (out of over 800 entries) to showcase some of the best High School art in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex.
This year’s ATPI contest, Association of Texas Photography Instructors, received more than 6500 entries from 89 schools. The entries came from schools across Texas, plus California, Kansas and Oklahoma. Three of The Cambridge School of Dallas’ students placed in some of the the hardest/most popular categories!
Francesca Norman (11th grade) won First Place in Beginner Informal-Environmental Portrait with a photo of Matthew Jordan titled “Narcissus.”
Aidan Howard (12th grade) won Second Place in Beginner Portfolio (5 unified photos) titled “Framed” which describes the compositional technique he was investigating with his landscape travel photos.
Lauren Ferguson (11th grade) won Honorable Mention for her portfolio in the Beginner Photo Story category (5 narrative photos with words) titled “Mad Girl’s Love Song/Ophelia’s Last Day” which featured a photo of Sarah Judd.
This is an amazing accomplishment for these artists!
My students all passed the exam!
We had four scores of 5! So proud of them all!
Poor, unsuspecting office aide is asked to pose for me for a portrait demo using pastels.
She was a good sport though.
