BAUHAUS Media / Design Scholars  
This year, two students will be picked as recipients of these awards. The Bauhaus was a highly influential art movement and school in Germany during the 1920s. It represents a movement that blended techniques from the past with the new ideas presented to artists after WWI. The two media artists chosen will represent the abilities that blend both traditional and modern skills and scholarship. The past recipients are here.

SUPPORT the DA Pathway
We need your support to improve our arts pathway to college. How you may help is here.

The mission of Ánimo Venice Charter High School is to prepare students for college, leadership, and life through innovative instruction, a rigorous curriculum, and the use of technology. At Ánimo Venice, we are committed to the education, and social and economic success of students who historically are unlikely to attend and excel at an institution of higher learning. We aim to achieve our mission by creating a student-centered environment that unifies the efforts of family, community, and school to foster life-long learning, cross-cultural competency, social responsibility, and academic excellence.
