Some 24 winning pieces of student art were inducted into the Santa Clara County Office of Education's gallery earlier this month, at the 15th annual Young Artists Showcase.
The young creators from 15 school districts were feted at the ceremony, touring the county education office's student art gallery, and received special commendations from local elected officials, including Campbell Mayor .
"Campbell was well represented by two great young artists," Baker says. "All the art on display was amazing. I'm really pleased to see our district continue its tradition of highlighting the important place art has in a well rounded education."
A panel of judges selected the winning pieces from about 200 submissions this year.
The winning pieces came from 15 school districts, and were added to the Office of Education's permanent gallery of some 900 pieces of student artwork, amassed over the past 15 years. The Office of Education's student art gallery is believed to be California's largest collection of permanent artwork from public school students.
The office of education has a policy of identifying students by their first names and schools.
Campbell artists include:
- Brian, Forest Hill Elementary School in
- Steven, Grade 11, from in .
