The NAHS, known as the National Art Honor Society, has had a pretty productive year with their various projects throughout the years of 2016 to 2017.
“I think going to Art Prize was the greatest thing about NAHS this year,” junior NAHS student Jeanelle Courtnay.
The Art Prize is an open independently organized international art competition and festival held annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan where artists participate in more than More than five hundred thousand dollars in prizes are awarded each year, which includes a $200,000 prize awarded entirely by public vote and another $200,000 prize awarded by a jury of art experts.
“The Art Prize visit was actually really enjoyable,” another junior NAHS student Aniston Niederquell, “I liked being able to walk around and look at extraordinary exhibits for a while with my friends in NAHS.”
The artists in NAHS had a productive year of venturing out, and discovering varieties of artwork as they work on projects themselves such as painting town, drawing portraits for orphaned children, and redesigning Van shoes with their own creative artwork.
