So, I didn't get anything in the self portrait contest. There was a looooot of amazing art entered, so I'm not too discouraged. It was good practice and a lot of fun no matter the results. Plus, Jerry's Artarama is making it an annual thing. There's always next year!
The great news is, State Art couldn't have gone better for me. I got five congressional awards and won a 1,500 dollar scholarship! Not only that, but one of my drawings was chosen to be the top congressional award in my state, which means it's going to be displayed in Washington D.C! And, and I get to fly out there to see it! I met so many new people on Friday, I made new friends, I had a nice dinner and went rollerskating, it was wonderful.
I've also decided officially that I'm going to SAIC next year. I'm so full of nervous energy right now.
