Last year, ROHS senior Alyssa Starr qualified for the State VASE competition and won a Gold Seal for her coin, which is the highest honor possible. Gold Seal coins are typically presented at the Texas Art Educator Association’s annual conference, but it was canceled last year due to COVID, the statement said.
This week, 17 art, ceramics and drawing students from Red Oak High School submitted artwork to the Ellis County Art Association’s Youth Art Exhibition in Waxahachie.
