|15th annual Art and our Natural Environment Art Scholarship|
Congratulations to Chelsea Kuzio
Ms. Kuzio's pen and ink landscape drawing, "Waterfall", edged out the other entries for the $1,000 prize. After graduating from Hampden Academy, Chelsea will be attending Western New England University where she will study to be a Pharmacist, play soccer, and pursue her creative impulses.
Both of Chelsea's parents are involved in the arts. She has been drawing since she was first able to hold a crayon. Chelsea has a proclivity for realism and prefers pen and ink as a medium.
Liberty Graphics offers a scholarship annually to encourage Maine students to continue in their artistic endeavors. The contest is open to all high school seniors who are residents of Maine. The scholarship is worth $1,000.
The winner of our 14th annual Art Scholarship was Marlee Huston of Bangor High School.
Her winning piece titled Looking for the Sun, is a linoleum print depicting a hiker atop a mountain enjoying a blazing orange sky.
