Wyland National Art Challenge

Congratulations to AP Art's Ilysa Sirota who was chosen as the Best in Grade Eleventh Winner for here painting 'Trapped' pictured above for this year's Wyland National Art Challenge.  

This year’s art challenge had participation from over 4000 students across the U.S. The contest encouraged students to explore the issues and wonders of conservation by painting classroom murals, individual works of art, and through photography. The Wyland Foundation hopes that the process of interpreting water-based habitats through art will lead students to a greater understanding of their role as future caretakers of our water resources.  

In addition to receiving a $50 Gift Certificate, her work is now featured on the home page of the Wyland Foundation
