The Review
9 April 2008

Five Maharishi School students recently won awards in the 2008 Texas A & M University-Commerce Third Floor Photographic Society National High School Shoot-Out.

In the color category for first-year submissions, Owen Blake won first place, Camille Morehead took second, and Tye Huggins third. Mr. Blake also received honorable mention for a second photo.

In the open color division, Mollie Cutler received honorable mention.

There were 2,001 prints entered from 24 high schools across the nation. The judges, commercial photographers Jerry Jones and Greg Kopriva, were impressed with the level of design, composition, and conceptualization involved in the imagery.

The students' photography teacher was Carolyn L. Waksman. In the study of art at the Maharishi School, students gain a working understanding of the principles of art and design and become familiar with analyzing and understanding art works.

Students are encouraged to develop personal reactions and ideas. This helps to nourish the students’ awareness through self-referral and reflection; they become more visually aware, flexible, and open to the arts.
