The talented students at the US Arts Center entered an international art competition with a theme of Humans in Space. The competition invited students ranging in age from 10 to 18 to submit visual, literary, musical and video artwork that represented the future of space flight. There were a total of 2,076 entries from 52 countries. Teacher Sue Dawe entered 19 students in the contest, with nine students garnering 11 awards. All of the winners will be listed on the website and the Mission X awards and art subcategory awards will be displayed on the online gallery The students of US Arts are taught fine art by accomplished artists with a concentration on drawing and painting skills. Accomplished professional artists teach fine art techniques to over 500 students of all ages. Some start as young children and continue on their high school years. US Arts is delighted that their work was acknowledged by the international panel of judges, scientists, engineers and astronauts who read their essays and judged their work.
