Winner of this year's Artist Challenge

 

 

During April Vacation Week, the Society held an Artist Challenge! where students competed for a gift basket of items from the Society’s store and a gift card to Michael’s Crafts.  Students were challenged to create a piece of artwork out of materials they would normally throw away. The winner was selected by members of the staff and Board of Directors member, Bill Harris.  The winner was Julia Vassallo!  Julia liked putting this project together because it was fun and she got to use her imagination.  “Sometimes you have things that can’t be recycled so I like to do something with it and I really like art,” said Julia.  Some of the items she used were from her house, but she also found things from freecycle.com, a non-profit organization which allows members to exchange materials and kept them out of landfills.  Congratulations to Julia!
