Lily Walt '23 Named Mary Campbell Easel Award Recipient
The BGA Visual Arts Department is pleased to honor sophomore Lily Walt with the 2020 Mary Campbell Easel Award for the fourth quarter.
Lily has been a dedicated art student throughout her middle school and high school career.  She has worked diligently on developing her drawing skills in the Drawing and Design course and has a unique style and perspective beyond the traditional plane of creativity.  We look forward to the years to come with Lily as she excels in the visual art program and could not be more proud of the skilled work she has accomplished. 

About the Mary Campbell Easel Award: Along with the gift of the Mary Campbell Visual Arts Center, Battle Ground Academy’s art department was also fortunate to receive several pieces of furniture and equipment from Mary Campbell’s studio. One of these was her easel. To honor Mary’s memory, it was decided that every quarter, the Visual Arts teachers would review the work of current students and choose a piece of art they feel exemplifies the qualities BGA students strive to achieve: creativity, effort, and quality. The chosen piece receives the Mary Campbell Easel Award and is displayed for the duration of the next quarter.
