In February, senior student-artist Han Zheng was awarded as a Gold Key winner along with a Hartford Art School scholarship at the Regional Scholastic Art Awards for his digital art portfolio, Metal Fish. This achievement automatically qualified his entry for the National Scholastic Art Awards, the nation's longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative teens. Each year, the jurors look for submissions that contain a combination of originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision. In April, Han was awarded the Silver Medal with Distinction and a scholarship of one thousand dollars for his submission of Metal Fish. He is one of 29 students in the country to receive this award and will attend the ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York City on June 9, 2022.
