2015 Scholastics Art & Writing Awards

Once again Topeka West photography students have had their work selected for the 2015 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards to be held at the Wichita Center for the Arts from February 6 - March 8, 2015!!

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is a national art and writing competition with regional shows held in each state.  If a student has their work selected they are awarded one of three awards:  Honorable Mention, Silver Key Award, or Gold Key Award.  After the regional show has concluded the Gold Key Award pieces are automatically selected to be juried for the national Scholastic Art & Writing Awards that are held in Washington, D.C. over the summer.

Please join me in congratulating these students on their amazing accomplishment!  This is a very selective competition showcasing the best of art from high schools in the state of Kansas.  All of our students should be very proud!!

New Work: Digital Photography 1

The fall semester at Topeka West has come to an end and a new group of students are starting their journey to becoming photographers!  Let's start off this bitterly cold semester by showcasing a large gallery of images by last semester's Digital Photography 1 students as inspiration for this semester's students.  I look forward to displaying our students' photography for semesters to come!!
