Charles Altson of Richmond will have his large oil painting, a self-portrait, showcased in the U.S. Capitol Building. He competed with other high school students throughout Contra Costa County in this year’s Congressional Art Competition sponsored by Congressman DeSaulnier. Charles took first place. Congratulations to him and all the high school students who entered.
Art work was submitted earlier this school year. It was juried by three judges, including AC5 Commissioner Darwin Marable. On Tuesday evening, May 5th, a reception was held at Diablo Valley College where students’ digital photographs, watercolors, oils and acrylic painting were displayed.
