Pine Tree High School Students Win Gold at State Art Event

Pine Tree High School has four state art winners from the Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE) held in San Antonio April 23rd.  Vashayla Charvis, Mario Hernandez, Sidney Andrade and Andrea Oviedo all won a gold medal for their artwork. These four students entered artworks judged to be more proficient than  25,000+ other student artworks on a regional level.

VASE is the largest and most respected art competition not only in Texas, but in the nation. The Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) has sponsored the Visual Art Scholastic Event (VASE) since 1994. VASE is the only art event of its kind in the nation. Students are provided the opportunity to bring artworks created in their art classes to their regional event where they are interviewed by a certified juror who evaluates their work based on a standard based rubric and their understanding of the art processes involved in the development of their artwork. Top artworks advance to the state level.

Congratulations to Vashayla, Mario, Sidney and Andrea for representing Pine Tree High so well!
