Visual Artists receive national honors in Scholastic Awards

March 25, 2016

Three current Interlochen Arts Academy Visual Arts program students have received national honors in the 2016 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards in photography, drawing & illustration, painting and sculpture. From the nearly 320,000 works of art and writing submitted to the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, only the top 1 percent end up recognized on the national level.

National award recipients included visual artists: Katherine Craymer (senior), Yanka Kostova (junior) and Isabelle Perchaluk (senior). A complete list of their works and honors can be found at the bottom of this story.
