    VASE 2009 Regional Event
    March 13, 2009
     
    VASE (Visual Arts Scholastic Event) competition is broken down so the students are competing within a certain experience level.  Art I competes with Art I, Art II with Art II and so on.  This seperation is in place to keep the AP students from competing with beginners and less experienced art students.
