Upper School Visual Artist Laureates Showcase Their Talent

The Visual Artist Laureate program was launched in Fall 2019 an effort to support and nurture the artistic talent and vision of our Annie Wright Upper School students. Last spring, eight new Laureates were selected across both Upper School divisions to work with Tacoma-area artist mentors (see 2022 Artist Mentors below) who provided inspiration and mentorship around concept development and artistic process. Over the summer months, the Laureates created a portfolio of 3-5 works, receiving reimbursement up to $200 for supplies or other formative resources. Their process culminated this past Thursday with a “Laureate Showcase” event, allowing each share to share their vision, process, and products with family and community guests.
