Every year, the Garden Grove Unified School District honors our students’ visual arts achievements by showcasing exceptional student work at the GGUSD "First Impressions Student Art Exhibit". Earlier this week, after judging hundreds of outstanding pieces of artwork sent in from K-12 students, GGUSD awarded Bolsa Grande’s own JieQi Yan the “President of the School Board” award. Yan, who is enrolled in Mrs. Mindy Cherri's Ap 2-D Studio class, created the award-winning work "Children of Ethnic Minorities" in oil and gold leaf. It is a visually arresting piece in triptych format, which is traditionally three separate pieces of art designed to be displayed together. Yan's portfolio concentration is on children of multiple ethnicities, their beauty, and their challenges.
Yan will be presented the President of the School Board Award at an awards ceremony at the school board meeting on Tuesday, March 20th. Congratulations to Jieqi Yan and her teacher Mindi Cherri for a job well done!
