Six Visual Art students from North Stokes High School recently won awards in the 90th Annual Scholastic Art & Writing Award Competition held at Barton College in Wilson.
“I am so proud of all the hard work my students put into their artwork,” stated Janis Henderson-Hunsucker, the school’s Visual Art teacher. “Their individual artistic style and Viking pride shows through in the many awards we received.”
Junior Lauren Chesnet won the Silver Key for her Newspaper Flower Dress in the Fashion category. Senior Morgan Rhoney won the Silver Key for his Digital Art entitled “Slaying Dragons.” In addition, Juniors John-Luke Charleville, Emilee Hardin, and Chesnet all won the Silver Key award for Digital Art as did Miranda Smith, a 10th grader. Smith also received an Honorable Mention for her sculpture of a portrait bust with fruit. Tenth grader Billi Wilson also received an Honorable Mention for her sculpture of “Firefighter.”
“Lauren came up with this creative idea for the paper dress for a recycle and redesign project,” explained dual winner Chesnet’s Family and Consumer Science teacher, Carmen Heath. “She always goes above and beyond on her projects. I am very proud of her design’s success.”
