Sanford School eighth grader Gabriella Gandia '26 is a National Medalist in the 2022 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. For her photograph, “Flames,” she received a silver medal in the national competition.
Sanford continued its longstanding success in the 2022 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition. In this adjudicated contest, all submissions are entered into a blind evaluation process conducted by some of the foremost leaders in the visual and literary arts. Jurors look for works that exemplify the awards’ core values: originality, technical skill, and the emergence of a personal voice or vision.
Photographer Joe Atlas visited Sanford’s Middle School in October to share his experience with students in Nina Silverman-Weeks' Smartphone Photography class. The goal was to explore Joe’s process, from meeting a client to the end product, during a Zoom session from his studio in California.
