Northland art students competed in Visual Art Scholastic Event (VASE)

The annual regional VASE (Visual Art Scholastic Event) took place at Klein Collins in February. At this event, students are placed in a 1-on-1 interview with a juror who asks specific questions about the work they created. This is a really great opportunity for each student to be able to speak about their artwork intelligently with other professionals.

A rating of 1-4 (lowest to highest) is then given to each artwork based on the interview. These students have tirelessly worked on their artwork for months in order to excel at Northland's first regional VASE showing. 

  • There were 1989 student entries.
  • 128 works advanced to state VASE.
  • Northland entered five entries from three students (Annie Durbaca, Sebastian Giep, and Zhu Lei)
  • All five artworks scored a 4.
  • Annie Durbaca and Zhu Lei advanced to the State event which will be held in late April.
