12 Fontana Unified Students Honored for Artistic Talent, Receive Awards from Young Artists’ Gallery

FONTANA, CA – Twelve Fontana Unified students will be honored for their artistic skill and creative vision during the annual Young Artists’ Gallery reception, to be held virtually on April 20.

Students from A.B. Miller, Fontana, Jurupa Hills and Summit high schools earned awards and honorable mentions for their visual art entries, which were created during remote learning and invoked emotion and imagination across a variety of media.

 “The arts are a valuable cornerstone of a well-rounded education, and we are proud to have strong arts programs in Fontana Unified that inspire students to explore their creativity,” Fontana Unified Superintendent Randal S. Bassett said. “Congratulations to our students on this well-deserved celebration of their talent.”

Students from middle and high schools across San Bernardino County submitted nearly 180 pieces this year, which are on virtual display.

Artwork was submitted in ten visual arts categories – comic art, ceramics and glass, digital art, drawing, film and animation, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture – and judged by a panel of professional artists and visual arts educators on originality, technical skill and personal vision.

Young Artists’ Gallery is part of the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools’ Arts Education Initiative, offered in partnership with the California Arts Project.
