CDA FM Artists Earn Top Honors

I love that creating art is evidence of our identity as image bearers of God (Gen. 1:26-27). This truth is of much greater value than any competition or any score. Congratulations to our CDA artists who competed in art competitions and most of all, thank you for glorifying God as you share your artistic efforts and gifts with others.
By Mrs. Kendal
For the VASE competition students create artwork and write about their creative processes and understanding of visual art. The contest was judged virtually this year by individual VASE jurors, who evaluated work using a standards-based rubric. There are 29 regional events held all over the state. In our region alone there were 1,619 entries from 30 different schools.

All 12 works of art created by CDA students received the highest score and two* of those were selected to advance to the State VASE competition on April 29! CDA will be represented by: Alexa Barthel, "Minneapolis", marker on paper, and Anna Beckey, "Splash Into Summer", graphite on paper

Wow! It was a great day for CDA at the Truth, Goodness and Beauty Art Competition at Colleyville Covenant. We had 31 entries and all of it looked wonderful hanging up. Many thanks to the all hardworking artists that submitted work. I’m so proud of all of my students. Thank you most of all for glorifying God as your share your artistic efforts and gifts with others.
