With an academy roster filled with intelligent and passionate students, it is no surprise to find exquisite artistic talent budding from the Heritage Academy. Art students from the Academy had the opportunity to express their artistic talent and have it on display at The Promising Picasso Student Art Exhibition hosted by the The Island School Council for the Arts (ISCA) located in Hilton Head Island, S.C. on February 6, 2014.
The ISCA collects artwork submitted by teachers in the Hilton Head and Bluffton areas for the Spring Exhibition. Students are give 16×20 inch canvases to create a work of art using the instruction and creativity they have acquired over the semester. The Heritage Academy art teachers then submit the students’ artwork to the ISCA where they are judged by professional artists and the gallery owner for the final selections to be hung.
In its 28th year, the ISCA Promising Picasso Student Art Exhibition featured artwork by public and private school students in the area in grades 3-12. Among the artwork submitted by the Heritage Academy were acrylic, oil and mixed media pieces. This year, Heritage Academy students Hazwan Ascraft Abdul Rahman, Kanwat Uenghiranpaisan, Maryann Aaron, Clementina Rodrigues and Kota Mishimura were all some of the winners at the event. Congratulations to all of the talented artists who participated!
