Claire Miller, 15, a member of Schroeder Painting Studio of Elk River for three years, collected four Minnesota Scholastic Arts Awards.
The St. Cloud Cathedral sophomore got Gold Keys for a watercolor pastel of a ballerina (shown) and an oil painting, plus a Silver Key and honorable mention for paintings.
“Claire is a remarkable student and an outstanding talent,” said Schroeder, whose studio has mostly adults.
“She understands and utilizes artistic concepts well beyond her years. I look forward to watching her abilities and work develop even further.”
