Two Guyer art students combine to win $2,500 in scholarships
Two Guyer High School art students combined to win $2,500 in scholarships as a result of placing first and second in the Dallas Public Library’s “Creating New Worlds: Teen Art Contest.”
Senior Addison Stevens won a $1,500 scholarship for her first-place digital art piece, while fellow junior Siany Kloss earned a $1,000 scholarship for her work. As part of her victory, Addison’s artwork auctioned by the Stan Lee Foundation on behalf of For Love & Art, a nonprofit organization that provides art experiences to those with limited mobility. Addison’s artwork sold for $100 in the auction, which also consisted of donated pieces by professional artists.
“Creating New Worlds” was open to all area middle and high school students in seventh grade or above who submitted original artwork. Of the submitted artwork, 50 entries were selected for display at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library in Dallas with a panel of local artists and industry professionals determining the final three winners.
Addison and Kloss are taught by Guyer drawing teacher Tiffany Fitzsimmons and painting and AP studio art teacher Chris Reid.
