Lake Ridge Art Makes a Mark


On February 13-14, seven members of the Lake Ridge  Art Club have advanced from regionals to the Visual Art Scholastic Event (VASE). The participants representing Lake Ridge are Seniors Karolina Khudanyan,  Jordan Martinez  Juniors Emily Su, Sidney Reyes,  Madison Robb,  Paula Fehlaur, and Sophomore Samantha Cox.

VASE, sponsored by the Texas Art Association, is the only state art competition of it’s kind in the country. High school students from all over North Texas presented their artwork and were judged by certified jurors who critiqued their work based closely on a given rubric.

“I wasn’t necessarily surprised that I made it because I was told that my painting would make it to state,” said LR junior, Madison Rob, whose drill artwork advanced to State.

The State Competition will take place on April 22-23 at James Madison High School. The competition is open to the public.
