Record Number of FISD Students Advance to State Art Event

Mar 27, 2017

Forty-six pieces of artwork created by Frisco ISD students will advance to the State Visual Art Scholastic Event (VASE), scheduled April 28-29 in San Antonio.

It is the largest number of FISD pieces to ever advance to this level of the competition, which is hosted annually by the Texas Art Education Association to recognize exemplary student achievement in the Visual Arts.

Frisco ISD artwork accounted for more than a quarter of all the artwork advancing to STATE VASE from the regional competition, which was hosted earlier this month at Independence High School. Other participating districts included Allen, Anna, Bonham, Celina, Leonard, McKinney, Melissa, Plano and Prosper ISDs, along with several private schools.

Congratulations to the following advancing students and their teachers. View a presentation here of all the advancing artwork.
