After three years of instruction and direction at O'Connor Art Studios, Eva Hutto is holding a Congressional Award that will fly her to the state capitol! The piece shown here, won her the honor and it too will join her at the state capitol where it will hang for a full year. Eva began studying the visual arts at O'Connor Art Studios when she enrolled in the homeschooling curriculum ARTistic Adventures, a newly developed homeschooling curriculum lead by Ruth Jatib O'Connor. Eva quickly excelled and continued onto to private lessons to further pursue her individual goals. The studio was able to work with her on the specific skills she needed to make her visions a reality. "Eva is a very talented young lady, in many areas of study, but what granted her this great honor had much more to do with her determination and conviction that she could accomplish her goals," describes Mrs. O'Connor. We try to instill that in all of our students! We are very proud of her and expect great things for her.
