Her work, titled âDancers Behind the Curtain,â was recognized for excellence among 93 entries by ninth through 12th graders from 15 school districts in King, Kitsap and Pierce counties. Painted in the spirit of French impressionist Edgar Degas, her work was judged on creativity, composition and technique.
