Fifteen Vanguard 8th Grade Art Students traveled to Harker Heights Saturday to compete in the JrVASE competition. Students brought home 21 Regional Gold Medals, and 1 State Platinum Medallion Winner.
VASE stands for Visual Arts Scholastic Event, it is sponsored by the Texas Arts Education Association (TAEA) and is open to public and private school students. We are part of Region 12 which extends from Waco to areas north of Austin/Harker Heights/Copperas Cove that includes public and private schools. JrVASE has not had a live event since the 2018-2019 school year due to the pandemic.
We had a wonderful mixture of all kinds of 2D and 3D artworks this year. Congratulations to any students that made art for the event!
State JrVASE STATE Platinum Medallion Winner was Gray Esteep with his kinetic sculpture – “Delta Wheel”.
