Wednesday, January 29, 2020

Landmark High School students won a total of 28 awards at the regional level of the 2020 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Three students won the Gold Key Award, six the Silver Key, and 15 students earned a total of 19 Honorable Mentions. (See below for a full list.)

 "This year, we had students recognized from a variety of classes including, Foundations, Printmaking, Painting, Graphic Design, Drawing, and Portfolio. It's especially exciting that we had four Woodworking students receive awards for their work in sculpture. This speaks to the high level of artistry and craftsmanship in that program," said Art Department Co-Head Beth Jamieson. "We continue to participate in the Scholastic Art Awards as a way for students to gain recognition and exposure for their hard work and vision in the arts." 

The work by Gold Key recipients will be on display from March 14–22, 2020, at Breed Hall, Tufts University, 51 Winthrop Street, Medford, Mass., 02155, and will be judged at the national level by a panel of renown artists, authors, educators, and industry experts.
