Several Advanced Art students recently completed and submitted their work to a statewide competition.
Colton De La Mora submitted a colored pencil piece to the competition.
“I did realistic images with colored pencils so I did super heros. I colored Spider Man, Deadpool and The Flash. I used all the shadows and everything that I have learned in art and incorporated it with the colored pencils,” said De La Mora.
Art teacher and club advisor Julia Topholm explained the process for the entries.
"It's a state wide competition that you compete at the Nevada level first all of our advanced students are going to compete. There are 24 students who are going to be entering pieces. A few will be entering portfolios. We're hoping that we'll have some more winner like last year placing in the top three levels which are Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention. If the student does get placed in the gold key that means their pieces will be taken to Reno and displayed," said Topholm.
