VASE Competition Winner and Amarillo Artist Adam Otwell

Panhandle PBS recently spoke to Amarillo College student and 2013 Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE) winner Adam Otwell about the event, art and more. The Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) has sponsored the 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 a regional event where they are interviewed by a certified juror who evaluates their work based on a standards based rubric and their understanding of the art processes involved in the development of their artwork.
