THS Senior Wins National Art Award
Torrington High School senior Leslie Tapia-Bernal has won a Gold Medal in the 2016 National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards! Her winning piece is the sculpture pictured below entitled “Ancient Feathers.” Tapia-Bernal will now attend the National Ceremony at Carnegie Hall on Thursday, June 2. Her sculpture was one of 320,000 submissions from students in grades 7-12; her award places her in the top 1% of all submissions. According to the Alliance for Young Writers and Artists, who sponsor the Scholastic Art Awards, Tapia-Bernal has “demonstrated that [she is] among the most talented young artists and writers in the nation.”
The THS senior is very excited about her win, the culminating achievement of her love for and dedication to art. Cynthia Amoroso, THS art teacher for the past 15 years, mentored Tapia-Bernal and will be attending the ceremony with the gold medalist and her family.
