HONOLULU - Natasha White (right) is one of 37 Boys & Girls Club artists whose work has been chosen to appear in the 2011 National Fine Arts Exhibit. White participates in the Fine Arts Program with the Boys & Girls Club at Aliamanu Military Reservation Teen Center.
Participants could submit artwork in four age divisions and 10 categories, such as watercolors, pastels, collage and sculpture. Selected from more than 252 finalists vying for top honors at this year\'s national competition, White's "Self" won for the 13-15 year-old age group in the oil/acrylic category. The piece will travel with the National Fine Arts Exhibit on a nationwide tour. The national judging was held recently in Atlanta.
The Fine Arts Program is a comprehensive initiative at the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The program promotes creativity in a variety of media and encourages artistic skills and cultural enrichment.
