Senior Ava Werner has been selected to receive a Gold Medal in this year’s Blick Art Materials Mixed Media Contest. The panel of art educators reviewed over 2500 entries in this year’s contest, selecting just 45 medalists. Their decisions were made by weighing equally the artwork and the artists statement that completed the phrase, “With Art I Can Connect To…”. The Gold Medal Honor will present Ava with a medal and $100 gift coupon to Blick Art Materials. This is NDA’s first time participating in this event.
