KISD Artists Qualify For State Vase Contest

KISD Artists Qualify For State Vase Contest

Keller ISD art students participated in the Region 11 VASE contest February 9-10 at Timber Creek High School.

The Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) has sponsored the Visual Art Scholastic Event (VASE) since 1994. VASE is the only art event of its kind in the nation. Students are provided the opportunity to bring artworks created in their art classes to the regional event, where they are interviewed by a certified juror who evaluates their work based on a standard based rubric and their understanding of the art processes involved in the development of their artwork. 

Jurors look for originality of concept, technical expertise, understanding of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for visual art, and the interpretation of the student’s stated intent. Jurors at the regional level evaluate student artwork using the following standard: · RATING IV – Superior · RATING III – Excellent ·RATING II – Strong · RATING I – Accomplished

The Regional Event also serves as the Area Event, which includes the selection of the State finalists. Regional artworks that receive a Rating IV (Superior) are juried again, by a select group of designated jurors, to determine the Area finalists. The jury selects the top ten percent (10%) of artworks which receive a 4 at the Regional event in each division to advance to State.

76 KISD art students received the highest rating of IV at last weekend’s contest! Congratulations to the following students and their art instructors, who qualified for the State VASE Contest!
