2015-Young People's Show
RCAS hosted the Young People's Scholarship Art Show featuring the artwork of Richardson Independent School District art students in grades 9 - 12. The awards were presented to the students on Monday night at the Richardson Library. Many thanks to Pete Quaid for Chairing this show and to Maureen Brouillette for judging it. And thanks to the teachers and students of RISD for their hard work and outstanding art. Claudia Caudill was kind enough to take these pictures at the awards reception, so a round of applause is in order for her work as well. Last, but not least, a heartfelt thank you to all of the volunteers without whom our shows could not exist.
