In lieu of a written piece this month, we present you with the film and animation portfolio of 2010 Art Portfolio Gold Medalist Jack Kavanagh. Portfolio Gold Medals are awarded to seniors for an outstanding body of artistic or literary work and include a $10,000 award. Jack’s Art Portfolio was the first animation portfolio in the history of The Awards to win this great honor. According to Jack: "My dream has always been to use art to challenge and entertain audiences. I love the idea of leaving an audience satisfied but somewhat puzzled."
You can view more teen-produced, Scholastic Award-winning film and animation on our Youtube Channel, the Scholastic Gold Key. Enjoy!
