Two Students Selected for the Prestigious Oklahoma Arts Institute and New Art II Sculptures - Yukon High School Art
Congratulations to Claire Cauthan and Olivia Walker who were selected to attend the 2019 Oklahoma Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain. These students will engage in an intensive two-week workshop with John Hitchcock who is a Professor of Art and Associate Dean of Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Each year several hundred students from across Oklahoma apply to the Oklahoma Arts Institute, but only 20 students are accepted into the drawing program. This marks the sixth straight year students from YHS have been selected as a participant or alternate to attend OSAI. Prior to spring break, the 1st hour Art II class completed their study of Minimalism through the creation of a wood sculpture. Click here for more information and to see examples from this project.
