Students at the Marysville Charter Academy for the Arts have not let the pandemic or distance learning slow down their creative efforts. Several visual art and creative writing students have recently been recognized for their talent, imagination, and resourcefulness. 

Keven Briceno, Hunter Hudson-Gessford, Dixie Rivera, Emmy Myers, Yahdira Sarabia, Alexi Hogue and Angela Delgado all had work accepted into the Crocker Art Museum’s Kingsley Art Club High School Regional competition. Over 40 schools in a 100 mile radius of Sacramento submitted entries. A total of 72 student pieces will be on exhibit at the museum (initially, only virtually) March 4 until May 8, 2021. The MCAA students’ work included drawings, paintings, and digital art (images included below).

Eighteen MCAA Creative Writing students will receive regional recognition at the Yuba Sutter Arts ceremony with two students, Aubrie Amons (Gold Key, American Visions Nominee) and Noah Mote (two Gold Keys) moving on to the National competition.

The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards Program was founded in 1923 and, for nearly a century, has inspired bold ideas in creative teens throughout the country. Notable alumni include Robert Redford, Slyvia Plath, Andy Warhol, and John Updike. The national Scholastic Art and Writing Awards Program annually receives over 300,000 student entries from around the world. The Northern California Art Region includes the counties of Colusa, Nevada, Placer, Sierra, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba.
Parents, as we plan to reopen schools with in-person instruction, we need you to choose a learning model for your student(s). Please complete the Blended Learning Agreement and return to the school as soon as possible.
