Brentwood High School seniors Tedi Craren and Yumino Sasaki were named the school’s most outstanding visual art students last week. Their work was exhibited with the creations of more than 100 other students in the school’s annual art exhibit at the school library.
Craren and Sasaki were chosen by art teacher Tim Rempel based on their work over several years, in the classes Art 1 through Art 4. They each received a “Senior Visual Arts Award” plaque “for excellence in the visual arts.”
Two additional awards went to seniors Victoria Aunger for a painting and Danielle Wojdyla for her sketchbooks.
“Victoria had such an amazing painting,” said Rempel. “Danielle did a great job with her sketchbooks. Most kids do 20 or 30 pages in their sketchbooks — they don’t fill it. She filled two. Plus she landed a little job making a book for a drug and alcohol counselor. They asked me if I had a student who could illustrate something for them. Danielle has an illustrative style and I said I have just the person.”
More than 500 creations from Rempel’s students in grades eight through 12 were exhibited in the library last week. Media included acrylic and watercolor paintings, sculpture, clay, ceramics and mixed media.
