8th Grader Earns Two Notable Visual Arts Honors

Thursday, April 2, 2020

Heathwood 8th grader Diego Thrasher has been recognized for his talents in the visual arts in two ways in the last two months.

First, he learned he was accepted into the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities Summer Odyssey program, a highly competitive program with hundreds of applicants each year.

Then he learned he had an artwork accepted into the ArtFields juried art exhibit. This is also a highly competitive, juried exhibit. Diego's work will be viewable April 22 - May 2nd on the ArtFields website. (It would have also been displayed in a physical exhibit, but that has been canceled because of Covid-19.)

Congratulations, Diego!
