Hutchison Girls Have Strong Showing at Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards

Hutchison girls won an impressive 75 Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards this year, with 17 Gold Keys, 29 Silver Keys, and 29 Honorable Mentions.
With these 75 awards, our girls won more total awards than any other independent school. See the full list of winners below.
The Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards offers the girls a chance to compete on a regional and national level. It is an opportunity for them to be recognized for the hard work that goes in to their art. It is also a way for the public to see the level of work that is produced on a consistent basis by Hutchison’s visual art department.
The Fine Arts curriculum at Hutchison provides our girls with the opportunity to practice and excel in many disciplines of art including: drawing and illustration, photography, fashion, sculpture, mixed media, jewelry making, painting, printmaking, and film and animation. Led by professional, working artists, Hutchison’s Fine Arts program is a perfect complement to its strong academic program. In addition to offering a way for girls to express their creativity, practicing an art discipline helps strengthen confidence, as well as critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
“Art does for the right brain what math does for the left, which is why it is important for every student, not just the girls who want to become artists, to have an art education,” said artist Jeanette Leake, middle and upper school art teacher. “Art helps girls think visually and gives them the tools to express their thoughts and ideas in technically strong and creative ways.”
Below is a list of Hutchison’s Scholastic Art Winners.
