Summer Session Art Competition Winners

Each year, Cushing conducts a national art contest for scholarships to Cushing Academy’s Studio Art and Portfolio Preparation Program: one boarding scholarship and one day scholarship. This year we received dozens of entries from local student artists as well as those throughout the U.S. It is a pleasure to announce that the winner of the boarding scholarship is Gabrielle from Florida, and the local winner is Polina from Massachusetts. Both are phenomenal artists, and we are excited to have them with us this summer.

For more information about the Studio Art Program, please click here. On an evening during the final week of Summer Session, the wide variety of work—metalsmithing, pottery, photography, painting/drawing, fused and stained glass, graphic design, and fabric art – created by this summer’s student artists will be on display after dinner in the Visual Arts Building.
