The Coral Springs Festival of the Arts is pleased to announce Megan Martin of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as the winner of the 2019 Paul Brite Art Scholarship. Ms. Martin will be awarded $1,500 to attend Florida Atlantic University.
Currently a high school senior, Ms. Martin has been taking art classes for 5 years and has recently begun working with watercolor as a primary medium. Though mostly realistic, her artwork floats into other realms as she works to develop her style and technical skills. Using personal experiences and memories, Megan works to reflect a part of herself in everything she does. She has proudly exhibited her work in the All Stars Exhibit for the past two years and recently received a 2019 Scholastic Arts and Writing Gold Key for her work “Licking Your Wounds”.
Ms. Martin’s love of the Arts also includes art history courses, visiting art museums and reading books on her favorite artists. “The Arts have not only shaped my past, but they will shape my future as I continue to grow and fine-tune my skills and knowledge.” says Ms. Martin.
