Watkinson School recognizes Jessica Nathan ’19 of West Hartford for receiving a coveted American Vision Award as well as a Gold Key for her sculpture called “Water Bird” from the Connecticut Regional Scholastic Art Awards on Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018.

The American Vision Award is a “Best in Show” award that recognizes work that most exemplifies originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision. Jessica will be recognized at a national ceremony and exhibition in New York City.

The Connecticut Regional Scholastic Art Awards Program is a non-profit, all volunteer activity sponsored by the Connecticut Art Education Association, a professional art educators organization. The program is arts education-based and as such, recognizes teachers as the central connection to the completion of successful student submissions. This program is a high quality, professionally juried event which recognizes only the best Connecticut student art work.

Watkinson School, Hartford’s oldest independent school for grades 6-12/PG, has an info session for prospective families on Friday, Feb. 9 at 9 a.m.
