Remember last year when I told you guys about Alex auditioning to get into an art program and not placing because he didn’t follow instructions on realism. Well this year the criteria added a new category – one piece of your choice. All the face to face audition pieces had to be realistic. The boy was convinced he didn’t make it in because he was last to audition and was only in there 5 minutes. It was a sad ride home so in Grandmom fashion I said to him, ” We are not meant to win everything and we are not meant to lose everything. Either way, I am proud of you for completing the process.” My thoughts on it was maybe they didn’t waste time on him because they had already accepted him. I covered all bases just in case.
Well the boy did it! Would you like to see his additional entry pieces that I think swayed the judges?
Like I said, I’m proud of him!
