March News and Notables!
The six Visual Arts Department seniors Olivia Mulholland, Violet Moyer, Elise Robinson, Audrey Landgren, Molly Block, and Maddie Madura were all winners in Illinois High School Art Exhibition (IHSAE) Senior Exhibition. $43 million in scholarships was awarded to 312 seniors in the event, and the six seniors from The Academy won over $1 million of the $43 million. Olivia received “Best in Show” for painting (see painting below).
Academy juniors also did quite well! Maxine Zhou’s drawing won the Gold Medal and was chosen as one of 20 works to be a part of a newly created traveling show (see drawing below). Lily Boyle’s sculpture won her a two-week course of her choice at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Alexis Yracheta’s mixed media piece won a scholarship to the New Hampshire Institute of Art Pre-College Program.
Congratulations to the students of the Visual Arts Department!
