I was thrilled to be a judge at South Dakota's premiere youth art competition CreARTive 2012 at the Watertown Events Center. There were over 700 entries from high school students all around the state. I was so impressed by the talent, craftsmanship, creativity, and uniqueness of the pieces. The creative energy at the event was phenomenal. A huge shout out to Heather Kallhoff and everyone who helped make this amazing experience possible for South Dakota's young artists. What a great way to support and celebrate their talents!
