senior art star
Senior Emily Maar is no stranger to receiving recognition for her art pieces. But her latest award is undoubtedly the most prestigious and impressive thus far. Maar entered numerous pieces into the Scholastic Art Awards in December and was among five artists in this region to receive an American Visions Award. This nominated her to win an award on the national level and after a panel of judges selected her as the best of the five recipients, she was awarded the National Medal. Maar’s drawing, a self-portrait, will now travel for two years to be displayed in dozens of museums across the country. The national awards ceremony is set for early June at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
