Art Class 2023: MVRHS students get creative


Congratulations to the following 18 MVRHS students for winning a total of 23 awards in the 2023 Scholastic Art Awards. Students received accolades in media, including ceramics, photography, digital art, and “expanded projects” (a new category involving interactive and installation art). Four students — Isabel Carreno-Vogt, Jonathan DeOliveira, Walter Prescott, and Samantha Warren — won the coveted Gold Key awards, which means their work will go on to New York City for the national competition in the spring. There was also a Charter School winner, senior Matti Floyd.
