In my computer graphics II class, our teacher made each assignment linked to an art competition. Of course, we get grades but all of our work in entered in a competition. Our first competition was for the Reginald F. Lewis Museum Juried High School Art Show, a Smithsonian affiliate.
We had to create a piece celebrating African-American women who’ve made a difference in our lives, nation etc. I created most of it in Adobe Illustrator then added some ankara around the border. I placed Honorable Mention. The piece and artist statement are above.
