If you see Izzy Maine-Torres today, give her a high five because she won the High School catagory of the Vermont Youth Art Month flag competition hosted by @vtartteachers and @sargentart! It's not a big suprise once you see this beautiful painting. She will be taking home a huge pile of art supplies for her hard work! Excellent job to Izzy and all of the Art 2 students who participated! πŸ‘β€οΈπŸ–ŒοΈπŸŒŸ #youthartmonth #vtart #yam2018 #winner #acrylics
