Amanda looks at her blank canvas in admiration. Slowly she starts to work. Piece by piece the canvas starts filling up with beautiful images. This is it, Amanda thinks. Submitting her work, she finds out she is going to state.

On April 27, senior Amanda Fuller attended the State Art Competition. Held at San Marcos high school, Fuller earned a four out of five award on her piece.

“I feel pretty good about my award,” Fuller said. “I wasn’t keeping my hopes held high because no one knew what the results would come down to. This was definitely a personal achievement.”

Art pieces are judged based on how the piece looks. The top award received is a five out of five. Only seven percent of all the pieces looked at are awarded five out of five.

“We aren’t competing against each other,” Fuller said. “ It’s more like a collective achievement. I am still very proud of myself.”

32,000 people submit their pieces to get into state. Out of the 32,000 only 1200 get to state making it a big deal to many people.

“I definitely think she deserved this,” art teacher Michelle Silcox said. “Amanda worked hard and her piece was really that good.”

At state, art pieces are judged in five categories. One/five, two/five, three/five, four/five. five/five.

“Having so many people at state the odds were not in my favor,” Fuller said. “Though I am not complaining with where I stand with my piece now.”

According to Silcox, having this award could very much help out Fuller in the future.

“This award is going to help Amanda’s portfolio,” Silcox said. “With anything like this your name gets out and people start looking into you.”

Amanda is graduating this year, making this the last year she could have gone to a State UIL competition.

“I am very proud of her,” Silcox said. “She is very creative and very talented.”
