Earlier this spring, thousands of young artists from across the US and Canada entered their artwork in the CelebratingArt.com national art contest. Malyn Brigman, a sixth-grader at Legacy, was named one of the top ten entries in the 4th-6th-grade category.
MaLyn will receive a free book featuring her published work and a $25 gift certificate for art supplies. MaLyn is no stranger to having her art recognized as exceptional as she has also received gold and silver medals at the ACSI Art Festival and two High Merit awards in previous Celebrating Art contests, in addition to being named Distinguished Legacy Artist in 2018.
Her art teacher, Mrs. Mayberry, says that MaLyn is already an exceptional artist because she combines a natural talent and an intuitive sense of style and color with a strong work ethic. She takes constructive criticism in stride, asking again and again, “What can I do to make my art better.” She is an absolute joy to teach and is well equipped to pursue an art career.
Pictured below are her three award-winning artworks.
