Congressional Art Competition Winner Announced, Annie Sun

Washington D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) announced that Annie Sun, a senior at Newbury Park High School, has won the 2018 Congressional Art Competition for California’s 26th Congressional District.

“The level of artistic talent from the Ventura County high school students participating in this year’s competition is truly inspiring,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “This is a great reminder that the arts and creativity play a critical role in young people’s lives and their educational success. Congratulations to everyone who participated, and thank you to the families, teachers, and community members who support these talented students.”

“I’m so honored to receive this recognition,” said Sun. “I’m passionate about art because it inspires me to challenge myself and shows me that creativity is limitless.”

Sun will be flown to Washington, D.C. where her artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol complex for one year. In addition, four honorable mentions were announced:

  • Josh Welcher, a junior at Newbury Park High School
  • Trinity Alvarado, a sophomore at Adolfo Camarillo High School
  • Katelyn Mehner, a senior at Newbury Park High School
  • Kaylie Pendleton, a junior at El Camino High School

The artwork of the honorable mentions will be displayed in Brownley’s Thousand Oaks office.

Started in 1982, the nationwide Congressional Art Competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and is an opportunity to recognize and encourage student artistic talent across the country. The competition is open to all students in grades 9-12 in California’s 26th Congressional District. The winner was selected by a panel of local judges.

Photos of the students and their art are available here.

In Memory of Shirley Williams

Received some sad news today with the passing of a long time student and friend, Shirley Williams. Shirley had been with Studio 316 for close to ten years until health issues prohibited her from coming,  producing several beautiful watercolor paintings during that time. She was such a sweet, modest, talented lady, really pleasant to be around. She will be greatly missed by us all. It’s been a privilege to be her art teacher and friend. Below is one of her last paintings she’d completed back in 2016, seemed  appropriate.
