Janet Baran, Medina County Art League Scholarship Committee Chair, stated, “I taught art for 36 years before retiring recently. I taught Advanced Placement Studio Art for the last 16 years of my career. I took on the Scholarship Committee because I truly miss working with students and seeing their world. I had three other judges working together with me, and we were bowled over by the quality and maturity of many of the works. We were looking for consistency across the works, sensitivity to the medium, and a point of view. These students are the ones who will carry on reaching out to the community and making our world a better and more interesting place in which to live."

Medina County Art League has a raffle of donated artwork from participating artists at its annual Art in the Park event, held annually on the third Sunday in July. For several years the league has added to the raffle earnings, making the Scholarship Awards an outstanding amount of money for the students.

High school seniors who are students of Medina County visual arts teachers were eligible to participate. Scholarship portfolios, non-scholarship portfolios, and individual entries were accepted. Artwork was to be original, school appropriate, and created in conjunction with school assignments. Portfolios were required to contain five pieces of art showing a diversity of talent. For students entering portfolios, the format is similar to a graduating art major in college who is required to hold a senior show.

The winners for the non-scholarship portfolio entries are as follows:

First Place

Danielle Taylor


Cloverleaf HS (Julie Krueger, teacher)

 

 

Second Place

Olivia Foose
