According to the state director, 34,000 artworks were entered state wide for regionals and only 2,300 made “state qualifiers” in the state of Texas.

Mallory Kea received the highest score possible with an “Exemplary rating” of “4”. Kea’s sculpture is called, “Red, Yellow, and Green”. Her sculpture consisted of paper mache, balsa foam and clay and based of the Pop art period style. To win state, students had to receive 17/20 points and she received 18/20 for her sculpture.

Alex Tellez was named State Qualifier with a “Superior rating” of “3” (second highest score). Alex created an original 2D piece of art from a photo of downtown Tyler called, “Shadows of the Past”.  Tellez was only 2 points away from winning state.

MaKayla Clements was named State Qualifier with a ” Superior rating of “3” (second highest score). Clements created a book sculpture on a piece of wood that she etched Roses on with a wood burner.

“I am proud of all my student’s artwork and hard work they put into them,” said Taylor. ” They all spent more than 6 weeks in my classroom creating these incredible pieces.”

The student work will be on display this week in the Fine Arts foyer.
