On February 25, 2017, 35 ARS students competed in the Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE) at San Marcos high school. VASE is a competition in which students enter art pieces to be judged on a scale of one to four, with four being the highest. Fifty-one art pieces ranging from traditional drawings, sculptures, or digital art were entered into the competition with participants being allowed two pieces at most. Out of the pieces that made fours, only a selected few are chosen to go on to State by a panel of judges. Karla Rodriguez’s (10) and Anais Arechiga’s (11) art pieces were selected to advanced to State competition.
