Senior Dalia Diab Receives First Quarter Mary Campbell Easel Award
BGA is pleased to honor senior Dalia Diab for winning the 2021 first quarter Mary Campbell Easel Award! "The Black Sheep" is a 18 x 24 oil painting on a wood panel and is part of Dalia's AP portfolio. Dalia has been a dedicated visual art student throughout her tenure at BGA and has recently come into her own sense of artistic style, finding a new interest in water-soluble oil paints. Her impressive skills, artistic curiosity, and dedicated work ethic will open doors to many successes ahead on her artistic journey at BGA and beyond.
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.
