Visual Arts Champions

Becky Barsi
Creative Arts Department Co-Chair Becky Barsi has long described the Scholastic Art Award program as the championships of visual art; this year Derryfield had plenty of champions. Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated. It is consitered our country's most competitive juried art competition for students in grades 7-12. While Derryfield is one of the smaller schools in the state, its student body is full of creativity. With 2262 submissions of work from students throughout the state of New Hampshire, Derryfield had 44 winning pieces, representing the creativity of 13 art students. The artwork of students from Derryfield and all around New Hampshire was on display at the Pinkerton Academy Theatre from January 20 - February 10, culminating in an award ceremony to recognize these creative accomplishments. Gold Key winning work will now go on to be considered for scholarships and national awards, and may be presented in NYC at this year's annual Scholastic Art Award Celebration at Carnegie Hall.
