Avry Victor received a National Silver Medal from 2017 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for her ink board work entitled “Mulatto”. This is the first National Medal received by a Pius X student. Avry will be a junior at Pius X next year. Her work is based on a drawing class assignment to use hands of family members as the subject of their composition. Avry drew her parents linked hands with an exacto knife to “scratch” the light values from the black ink board to create her illustration.
