Fine Arts Center Student Takes Best in Category/Craft
Jurors have awarded thousands of dollars in cash and scholarships in Cleveland Institute of Art's 2015 2D3D National Art + Design Competition. Jane Tierney, a junior at the Fine Arts Center and Wade Hampton High School, earned Best in Category/Craft for her work entitled, “Boss Mare.” She was one of only eight students from across the nation to take top honors in the competition. Jane is taught by Fine Arts Center 3D Design in Metal Instructor Katy Cassell.
Jane will be awarded valuable art supplies from contest sponsor Faber-Castell as well as a $10,000 annual scholarship to attend Cleveland Institute of Art.
The winning artworks were selected by a panel of CIA faculty from entries by 1,635 students representing over 450 American high schools in 39 states. Winning recognition in CIA’s 2D3D competition may be an important first step toward higher education and a professional career. They and their teachers recognize that studying art and design develops the creative and critical-thinking skills young people will need for the jobs of the future.
CIA’s 2D3D competition was created in 2013 to recognize talented young American artists and encourage them to pursue career paths in art and design.
