Several Worcester Prep art students placed in the 2018 Eastern Shore Classic Dog Show Art Contest, which connects student and canine through artistic expression. Students in lower school art teacher Rebecca Tittermary’s and middle/upper school art teacher George Zaiser’s classes placed in all but two categories, capturing five first place ribbons and four top honors including Reserve Best in Show Award, Pathos Award, and two Peoples’ Choice Awards. Winners were selected based on their interpretation of “Dogs, Man’s Best friend” by a panel of judges which included local artists, art educators, and AKC judges.
