Texas High School Visual Art Scholastic Event (VASE) begins its 25th season in January of 2019. The first VASE event was held in 1994 with just over 400 student entries; in 2018, over 35,000 artworks were entered in VASE.
Students create artworks, write about their creative processes and understanding of visual art and articulate information about their artwork during an interview with a VASE juror, who evaluates their work using a standardsbased rubric. Students who score a “4” advance to Area Competition and ten percent advance to state.
This year, State will be held at San Marcos High School on April 27.
