Margaret Daniel often thinks about the AP Art class she took at Westminster Schools of Augusta.
Daniel, of the Class of 2015, said the rigor of the course taught by Vivian Hornsby, art teacher in the middle and upper schools, prepared her for her foundation classes at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and enabled her to thrive in its highly competitive environment.
“The work I created in the class enabled me to get several scholarships at SCAD and laid an incredible foundation for my university studies,” Daniel said of the AP Art class she took at Westminster her senior year.
One of those scholarships, the Angelo Donghia Foundation Senior Scholarship Award, of which Margaret was named a 2018 winner, is the largest in the interior design industry.
“Mrs. Hornsby was a great mentor who inspired my confidence to think independently, fearlessly embrace failures, and to create boldly as an artist.”
Daniel, in her senior year at SCAD, continues to work towards a BFA in Interior Design. She said AP Art has had a lasting impact on her future.
“The different media I gravitated towards in AP remain some of my favorite tools today, and the techniques, design processes, and jargon I learned have served me well in each class at SCAD,” she said.
