CCHS Artists Recognized

Crook County High School has four artists who will be recognized at the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards this year. This art competition is open to all high school students in the state of Oregon.

CCHS Art teacher Mrs. Struck is holding Wyatt Sabin’s painting. Wyatt received the Silver Key award. Next to Mrs. Struck is Summer Shaffer. Summer created two sculptures and received Honorable Mention. Third from left is Jenna Porter. Jenna received Honorable Mention for her artwork. Samantha Jenkins, far right, is holding her artwork, made from coffee and tea. Samantha received three awards for her painting: Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention.

These artists’ works will be on display at COCC in the Pinckney Art Gallery from Feb. 9 – March 1. Gold Key artwork will automatically be considered for competition at the national level. That means that one of Samantha’s paintings will be considered for the national show at Carnegie Hall in New York.
