Junior Alice Wang Receives Second Quarter Mary Campbell Easel Award
Congratulations to junior Alice Wang on being named the Mary Campbell Easel Award winner for the second quarter of 2021-22! Alice has been at BGA for four years and has taken art classes each year, working diligently on her drawing and painting skills. Alice's oil painting skills have reached a new level while working on her self-portrait "The Blossom of Youth." We are excited to see her growth as she develops her sustained investigation for her AP portfolio next year.

About the Mary Campbell Easel Award: Along with the gift of the Mary Campbell Visual Arts Center, Battle Ground Academy’s art department was also fortunate to receive several pieces of furniture and equipment from Mary Campbell’s studio. One of these was her easel. To honor Mary’s memory, it was decided that every quarter, the Visual Arts teachers would review the work of current students and choose a piece of art they feel exemplifies the qualities BGA students strive to achieve: creativity, effort, and quality. The chosen piece receives the Mary Campbell Easel Award and is displayed for the duration of the next quarter.
