Four Holderness Students Win Scholastic Arts Awards
Holderness art students got a boost of recognition from the Scholastic Art Awards of New Hampshire. Dianne Fu ‘23, Cece Robinson ‘24, Logan Severance ‘24, and Jobe Gemmell-Hughes ‘21 all received Honorable Mentions. Logan Severance ‘24 also received a Silvery Key for her work “Recreation of Museum Artwork.”
The Scholastic Art Awards of New Hampshire (SAANH) is a regional visual arts affiliate of the prestigious National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Each year in September, the call goes out from SAANH to all New Hampshire art educators, grades 7-12, to register and submit their outstanding student artwork. Work is judged on originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
Art Department Chair and Visual Arts Faculty Marylena Sevigney shared in the excitement, “I was excited to learn that these four hard-working students were recognized by Scholastic and received the honor of these awards. They are well-deserved and I'm very proud of them!”
We are so proud of our awards winning student artists. Congratulations to all the winners!
February is Black History Month, and students in Holderness School’s new Culture and Justice Club have used that time to spark the community’s awareness and appreciation of Black history, excellence, and culture.
Despite a number of editorial challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Holderness School’s literary and visual arts magazine, Mosaic, recently took home a top award from the 2020 Scholastic Yearbook and Magazine Awards.
