WHAT: Comptroller Franchot will present Maryland Masters Awards to three Baltimore County Public School students: Haley White, a fifth grader at Glenmar Elementary School in Middle River, who did a self-portrait; Maria Karvounis, a seventh grader at Hereford Middle School in Monkton, who drew a still life using water color paints, oil pastels and charcoal; and Jasmine Gilliam, a senior at Randallstown High School, who did a colored pencil portrait drawing using India ink.
The award recognizes young artists who have displayed extraordinary artistic skills and vision for Maryland’s future. The new award program was initiated to celebrate students’ achievements through the arts and to showcase artwork of students from kindergarten to 12th grade for two months in the Comptroller’s Office in Annapolis.
The Baltimore County students’ art also will join a collection of original paintings by one of the Comptroller’s favorite artists, Herman Maril. An American modernist, Maril was born in Baltimore and served as a professor at the University of Maryland for more than 30 years.
