(3rd Place – Ceramics)
School: Eagle River High School
As a senior in high school, I am so grateful that art programs are a choice for any student who wishes to risk being creative. It has given me a place for growth, experimentation, successes, and failure. These ideals are key for any environment, and have taught me to be flexible and learn from my mistakes. Now that I am considering myself an artist, it gives me a great amount of respect for others works. I know that the planning and choices made are difficult tasks. Ask any artist and they will tell you that they love what they do and I can assure you that I love what I get to do every day.
