Congratulations to junior Olivia Huang who was recognized in the Scholastic Art and Writing competition with a Gold Key award for her artwork “Fortitude.”
Olivia’s illustration was originally a sketch where she was just practicing drawing human figures. Soon she grew intrigued by the character’s mood and demeanor that she decided to let her creativity flow.
“Art is a way for me to express my emotions. If I feel sad, I’ll draw, even if it’s just for a few minutes. I’m able to express emotions in a way that I can’t with words,” said Olivia, who studied art with Ms. Adams (Drawing 1) and Mr. Gaeta (Drawing 2).
