JACKSONVILLE — “Draco,” an elaborate clay sculpture of a dragon head created by JHS senior Andrew Rock, was one of several entries by the school's art students in a Feb. 8 Visual Art Scholastic Event (VASE) competition held at Whitehouse High School. Students submit their creations, then are interviewed by judges about their work, according to art instructor Cassie Bayless. “It is a great way for students to understand their art that they create, but it also helps them to improve on their future work,” she said. Four students participated in the event. Diana Benabides, a senior, showed a colorful painting of a horse, a gift for her father; Senior Joy Stricklin took a 3D paper mache sculpture of a camera that displayed her love for photography, titled “People Change, Pictures Remain;” and Shyia Magan, a junior, made a detailed watercolor of tigers and patterns that showed her personality and cultural influences, titled “Standoffish.” Joy Stricklin scored a high 3 and Shyia placed the highest score with a 4, receiving a medal.
