Congratulations to Katie Hennessee who is a 2015 merit finalist for YoungArts in the visual arts category! The National YoungArts Foundation identifies and supports the next generation of artists in the visual, literary, design and performing arts, assists them at critical junctures in their educational and professional development, and raises appreciation for the arts in American society. Each year, there are approximately 11,000 applications to YoungArts from 15-18 year old (or grades 10-12) artists, and from these, approximately 800 winners are selected. We are so proud of Katie for her hard work and talent displayed to achieve this award. Kudos also to our amazing CFA visual arts teachers Mary Scurlock and Genevieve Dowdy who provide excellent training and development of our young artists.
