Kitty Hawk Art Students Practice Plein Air Work

The Art III students at Kitty Hawk recently had the chance to tour the McNay Museum. The viewing emphasized landscapes in the museum's collection.  It was a great experience for them because afterwards, they all found a pleasing spot to work on their own plein air creation.  Plein air is the act of creating a work such as a landscape drawing or painting by leaving the indoor studio behind and working in that natural environment.  It may have been a bit warm, but they all found a little shade.

  

Wagner Violinist Wins Gold At State

Congratulations to Wagner freshman Ian Fernandes who competed in the Texas State Solo and Ensemble Contest at U.T. Austin recently and came away with GOLD!  This is not something that happens very often, in fact, this is the first Wagner orchestra student in several years to achieve this.  Ian was required first to have earned a Superior Rating at UIL Solo and Ensemble competition in February, which he did, and for the state contest, he had to memorize his entire competition piece for performance. He did all this as a freshman.  His instructor Mrs. Gonzalez hopes that other students will take on the challenge and see far they can go as well.

Seven Judson High School students competed recently in the State VASE (Visual Arts Scholastic Event) at San Marcos.  One art piece had to be pulled because it belonged to an international student who went home, but the remaining 6 went to this final competition stop and did well.
