Several Redlands East Valley High School students received recognition for their art on March 15.
The Young Artists Gallery Reception is an annual event hosted by the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools and Riverside Inyo Mono San Bernardino
California Arts Project in association with The Arts Education Network.
A total of 27 schools entered the competition and 177 pieces of art were judged for the event. The categories of the show were drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, digital art, comic art, ceramics, mixed media and film/animation.
Out of the 177 pieces of art juried at the show, there were four winners from REV.
“Living in life, that’s probably the best inspiration that I get,” says second place winner REV sophomore Mia Altenbac said. “Things that just come naturally I find inspiration from that.”
The following art pieces are the winners from REV. The winners were also recognized at REV’s spring rally on April 8.
