• Fine Arts: Where excellence isn’t just celebrated, it’s expected.

  • Senior Portfolio-District Champion

    Posted by Robert Richard on 4/12/2024

    Last night was the finale of the Fort Worth Senior Portfolio Competition. Jimmy Rangel and Mary "Belle" Galvez previously made the cut to the Top 10, and last night they rocked!. This is a competition based on the culmination of four years of dedicated work in the visual arts. So, it's not just quality, but also quantity. As a reminder, we compete against 4A, 5A, and 6A schools within Fort Worth ISD. (Heights, Paschal, Northside, IM Terrell, etc.)

    Jimmy Rangel placed 3rd!
    Mary "Belle" Galvez took the crown as District Champion, 1st Place!

    We've placed and won before, but this is our first time having two of the Top 3 in one year.

    I would like to give a sincere thank you to Mrs. Flores, Mrs. Bowers, and Mrs. Espree for coming out and supporting the kids. They were very excited to see administrators there as they basked in their victories.

    On a personal note, my beautiful wife Krista, who teaches at AHHS, and her student Jordan, placed 2nd. So our house swept the Top 3, which was exciting for us as a couple.

    If you would like to see the exhibition, it is up through the weekend, just down the street, at House of Neville Gallery, near Tokyo Cafe on Camp Bowie.

  • District Art Show and Senior Portfolio

    Posted by Mr. Richards on 3/21/2024

    Last night, Fort Worth ISD held it's annual District Art Show and District Senior Portfolio Show.

    In the District Show, we compete against all Fort Worth ISD Schools (4A-6A) and Mrs. LaForge and I had several winners.

    Top 3 Winners in the District Art Show (with category in which they placed):

    Ella Chamberlain - Sculpture
    Yareli Gutierrez - Mixed Media
    Mya Mendez - Mixed Media
    Mya Mendez - Fibers

    Also, the Top 10 Senior Portfolios were announced. Over 140 seniors submitted their portfolios for the district show, and from there the Top 10 are selected for an exclusive show at a private gallery on April 11th. At that show, the Top 3 winners will be announced and win scholarships. Little WHHS had 20% of the Top 10 for the 4th straight year, a big accomplishment competing against schools with six & seven art teachers.

    The following seniors at WHHS submitted portfolios:

    Angelica Massie, Elle Chamberlain, Dorian Leyva, Mya Mendez, Idaly Ramirez, Yareli Gutierrez, Belle Galvez, & Jimmy Rangel

    Congratulations to Belle Galvez and Jimmy Rangel for making the Top 10 this year!!!

    Belle & Jimmy will advance to the Top 10 show and compete for a Top 3 spot and District Champion.

    Below are their submissions. The first pics are Belle, then Jimmy's. If you see any of the above-mentioned kids, please give them some congrats!
