Student Spotlight: Senior Awarded $10,000 from Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

Congratulations to our senior high school student Maya Dixon (12th Grade, Fieldston Upper School '18, Bronx)! Maya has been with us since middle school, and we're so proud to be sending her off with such high accolades! 

Maya was chosen as a Visual Arts YoungArts finalist, received a Gold Medal Art Portfolio from Scholastic Art & Writing Awards AND  received TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS IN SCHOLARSHIP for her conceptually strong portfolio. 

Maya will be attending Cooper Union in the fall, where we know she will go on to achieve even greater, more awesome feats.

At Oogie Art we focus on promoting students' individual voices and help them craft their experiences, concepts, and visions into expressive artwork and portfolios. Maya's achievements are a testimony to #blackexcellence that we aim to keep encouraging.
