The Melissa High School Visual Art program proudly showcased the talents of two exceptional students, AnaBelle Gonzales and Logan Venner, who represented MHS at the prestigious State Texas High School Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE) held on April 26-27. Their artwork, carefully chosen from 33,127 regional high school art entries, stood out among the crowd with only 1,418 making it to the state level.

Participation in the VASE competition requires students to not only create original artwork but also to articulate a narrative that reflects upon their creative journey and understanding of visual arts, engaging in insightful discussions with judges about their pieces.

Both Gonzales and Venner received a rating of 4 for their artwork, with 5 being the highest attainable score. Congratulations to these talented individuals and to the entire Visual Arts program for their unwavering dedication and hard work throughout the year.
