Five Students Selected for Prestigious Oklahoma Arts Institute and New Art II Work

Congratulations to Clyde Ross, Henry Ashby, Tien Tran, Sophia Bowie, and Olivia Walker who were all selected for the 2018 Oklahoma Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain. These five students now have the opportunity to study with Chicago-based artist, Geoffrey Todd Smith, and will engage in an intensive two-week workshop. Each year several hundred students from across Oklahoma apply for the Oklahoma Arts Institute, but only 20 students are accepted into the drawing program. This marks the fifth straight year students from YHS have been selected as a participant or as an alternate to attend OSAI in June.

The 1st hour Art II class recently completed their study of Minimalism through the creation of a wood sculpture. Click here for more information and to see examples from this project.
