UC High Student Sculptures Fare Well at the Fair

Best of Class

Fabrication and Design students at University City High School were rewarded with a Best of Class, five first place, four second place and two third place prizes in sculpture at the San Diego County Fair.

Masks and metal sculpture dominated the winners. The students submitted 11 pieces to the student showcase at this year's fair.

Fabrication and Design is a college level a-g fine arts sculpture course that prepares students for college and career. Students are taught to communicate ideas and concepts through the use of a visual language that incorporates the principles and elements of design in their sculptural creations. Each work is a story- telling devise, giving form and insight into each artist's emotional, cerebral processes.
