Boise teens celebrate published art

More than 100 Boise School District students will be featured in this year’s Valley Visions literary arts magazine. The compilation of student artwork and writings is in its 13th year.

“The magazine features photography, short works of fiction, and oil paintings. Pretty much if you can make it — we celebrate it,” said Becca Anderson an English language arts supervisor in the Boise district. “This is a professional-level quality magazine and it’s the beginning of a career for students in the arts.”

More than 700 students submitted work for consideration. Through the selection process, only 100 artists and writers got a place in the 53-page magazine.

“I think it’s a great honor to have my work displayed and very proud that other people can see my work,” said Olivia Terry, 11th-grader at Boise High School. “Valley Visions is a great place to see young talent and a lot of the artists are beyond amazing.”
