Catrina Maria Crawford, granddaughter of Linda and Bob Edic from Boca Grande and daughter of Darlene Edic Crawford, recently graduated from Dreyfoos School of the Arts High School in West Palm Beach and will be attending Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Fla.
Catrina was honored to be a national YoungArts Finalist (top 20 new artists out of more than 12,000 applicants). She was also a recipient of a national scholastic art award, which she received at Carnegie Hall.
Each year, YoungArts receives more than 11,000 applications from the nation’s most talented young artists (15-18 year old or grades 10-12) from around the country. From this pool, approximately 800 winners are selected through a blind adjudication process and are recognized for their outstanding work and accomplishments in the literary, visual, design and performing arts fields.
Catrina will be one of ten of the YoungArts finalists shown at The Flomenhaft Gallery in NY.
