Shorecrest High School seniors Niko Beltran and Alex Hur were among the award winners at the Regional Student Art Show sponsored by the Puget Sound Educational Service District.

Niko's acrylic, ink and watercolor piece titled Five Sevenths (above) was selected as one of seven regional award winners to advance to the State Art Show in Olympia. Regional winners were selected based on overall point in categories of creativity, composition and technique.
Niko says about his artwork: "Five Sevenths is a piece derived from a deep clash I'm confronted with 5 out of 7 days of the week (Hence Five Sevenths). The painting conveys the contrast between school and "concrete facts" such as math and science, and how it coincides with my passion for art. Most days I can't wait to sit down at my easel and create, but there's always math homework or history reading in need of completion before I can do so, I used a lot of symbols to strengthen my concept of the clash I have between logic and imagination."
Alex's acrylic piece titled After School was chosen for a King County Executive's Award by representatives from 4Culture (a public corporation managing cultural programs, including the arts, on behalf of King County). Only King County schools are eligible for these awards. Recipients receive a plaque/certificate as recognition for their efforts.

Laura King is their art teacher at Shorecrest.
