Uxbridge Art Student Earns MAEA President’s Choice Award 

Uxbridge High School Principal Michael Rubin is proud to announce that sophomore Zoe Wojnowski has been selected as a recipient of the Massachusetts Art Education Association’s President’s Choice Award.

“In a world that values creativity and innovation, a student like Zoe shines through her imagination and skill,” said Mr. Rubin. “This demonstrates her commitment to the craft and creative arts, and we are excited to see what the future holds for her artistic ability.”

Zoe’s work was completed as part of her Digital Photography class and submitted through a collaboration with UHS art instructor Claire Munley. Entitled “Pomegranate Splash” Zoe captured the falling fruit, frozen in time perfectly. The Shutter Speed Labs are always a fun experience for both Munley, and the students. The objectives were to capture the falling fruit in focus, with proper exposure, and within frame.

“Zoe nailed this photo perfectly,” shared Ms. Munley. “We are so proud of her, and we are hoping the fruits of her labor do not go unnoticed.”

Student work will be on display through the National Art Education Association’s Youth Art Month virtual exhibit. She was one of 16 students from across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to have work selected. 

The mission of the Massachusetts Art Education Association (MAEA) is to advance high-quality visual arts education throughout the state by empowering art educators to excel in the practice, instruction, promotion, and celebration of visual art.
