So Proud

Two of my apprentices in the Arts on the Block job skills and life skills nonprofit in Wheaton juried into the Congressional Art Contest and both won Honorable Mention awards given by Congressman Chris Van Hollen in a reception and ceremony Monday, April 11. Three other apprentices submitted artwork as well and received certificates. How awesome is that!. The artwork will be on display at VisArts in Rockville through May 4.
