Anaïs St. Amant
Art Educators of New Jersey – High School Scholarship Award
My name is Anaïs St. Amant and I am a student of class 2020 at Nutley High School. I am a proud member of the National Art Honor Society and have taken art classes throughout my four years. As an art student, I believe that it is my role to bring art into the community and help create a welcoming environment. I work on school murals, posters, designs, and help behind the scenes for school musicals with the Set Design Club. Aside from art, I enjoy studying math and science, as well as reading novels and short stories. I strive for High Honor Roll each marking period and challenge myself by taking rigorous classes. I am so grateful for the support of my family, friends, and teachers. Recognition from the governor further encourages me to follow my passion for art into my career. My goal is to create art that can put a smile to the viewer’s face, or introduce a new perspective to a given topic. Next year I will be continuing my journey at Montclair State University and pursuing a BFA. I aspire to be a professional illustrator and raise my own family of Indian Runner ducks.
