BG Students Honored by SAANH
Several Bishop Guertin students have been recognized for their outstanding work at The Scholastic Art Awards of New Hampshire.
The honorees will have their works on display in the exhibit at Pinkerton Academy's Stockbridge Theater in Derry through Sunday, Feb. 5. At the conclusion of the exhibit, there will be an awards ceremony at noon on Feb. 5 to present students whose works were selected across several categories.
The Scholastic Art Awards of New Hampshire
The Scholastic Art Awards of New Hampshire (SAANH) is a regional visual arts affiliate of the prestigious national Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Each year in September, the call goes out from SAANH to all New Hampshire’s Art Educators, grades 7-12, to register and submit their outstanding student artwork.
There are 17 individual categories that students may enter work in. They range from Drawing and Painting to Sculpture and Mixed Media. Seniors may also submit a body of 6 pieces of work in a portfolio to compete for a number of cash and scholarships.
The SAANH believes that a moment of positive recognition can inspire a student to pursue a lifetime of creative expression. It is critical to provide each emerging generation of creative leaders with early encouragement and to support artistic development. Acknowledging that these skills are best nurtured in an environment in which creativity is valued, it is also essential to recognize and reward educators for their classroom efforts to encourage creativity, and to cultivate support for young artists.
