Ten Winton Woods High School (WWHS) students’ are now sharing their artwork with the world online. After being selected as winners of the Cincinnati Art Museum’s 10 x 10 Teen Art Expo and the Taft Museum’s Artist Reaching Classrooms 2020 exhibition, the students' art pieces are featured in virtual exhibitions. "I am so proud of my students and love the fact that everyone can see how talented they are,” said Fine Arts Director Carol Becci-Youngs. “My students are the best!"
High school junior Brendon Lowry won third place in the Artist Reaching Classrooms contest for his plaster art piece called “A Blown Mind”. When asked if he was happy with his piece, he responded, “I am happy with everything I do based on how much fun it was. I have received a tremendous amount from this experience and exposure. To me, it is not about winning; it is about the ride, the journey on your way to the top, and what you learn from it all. My favorite part was putting it together and seeing it come to life. I loved everything about it. These were skills that I developed from my project-planning tool kit. They were important as I worked to develop the planning, organization and excitement of the project.”
The winners of the Taft Museum’s Artists Reaching Classrooms 2020 Exhibition Contest from WWHS are: Brendon Lowry, Lillian Bewaji, Sidney Posey, Alejandra Hernandez, Riley Lauchard, Yisiah Roberts, and Roberto Engleman. The Cincinnati Art Museum’s 10 x 10 Teen Art Expo winners from WWHS are: Keiasia Johnson, Wynter Edwards, and Yairi Rojas. To view the outstanding work of our students, please plan to schedule a virtual visit to the Taft Museum’s Facebook page and the Cincinnati Art Museum website. You will be pleasantly surprised.
