Chi Chapter of Tri Kappa selects award recipient

Posted: Friday, June 9, 2017

Emma Smith, a junior at Huntington North High School, was awarded the Youth Art Award sponsored by the Chi Chapter of Tri Kappa.

Each year a work of art by a student is selected from pieces created during the year by students in art classes. The selection is made by a group of members from the local Tri Kappa Chapter. The work is then professionally framed by Four Corners Custom Framing. The state chapter of Tri Kappa strongly supports culture in their endeavors statewide.

Emma will be a senior next year at Huntington North. When asked why she loves art she responded: “I love art because it gives me an output to express the ideas running around in my head. Without art, I don’t know what I would do; it’s like breathing, I can’t live without it. After I graduate, I plan on continuing to go to school, but I’m not quite sure where yet. I’d like to major in illustration or character design. I’m not sure what exactly I want to do after college besides doing art, but I still have some time to think about that.”

According to Tri Kappa representatives, Emma’s artwork, “The Lonely One,” is a breathtaking pencil drawing that immediately captures the viewer’s attention.
