international student artists
We are pleased to acknowledge students whose artistic, graphic design, photography, videography or animation design talents contribute to the aesthetic and academic value of our curriculum materials.
Each year, EduChange sends a “call for designs” to participating schools in our community. Students may submit new or replacement renderings that enhance scientific understanding of the concepts in the digital text. If a submission is chosen, both the student & sending school are eligible for cash and other prizes!
Congratulations to Our Amazing Winners!
My name is Anqi Chen and I am 16 years old. I’ve been moved to China, Egypt, and Yemen since I was a little, so I’ve experienced different cultures. I am currently living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where I attend The International School of Kuala Lumpur. I am drawn to sports because of its competition, but I fall in love with art. It envelops me in a world of color and creativity. Art shows a world of imagery and expresses an idea to people, and it walks me through the craziness of it. In addition, it lets out my excitement of trying new mediums and techniques. I strive to show people what I see in this world, creating the atmosphere by pens and pencils in my hands. Art is my exploration of another side of life.
My name is Yeongseo Lim and I am 15 years old. I am currently living in Malaysia, where I attend The International School of Kuala Lumpur. Art is one of many of my hobbies that I like to do during my spare time, especially crafting, drawing and painting. I like photography because you are able to take snippets of your life, and stay true to the moments that you want to cherish. I have never been technical nor used professional equipment towards photography, but I love how this can easily be done by clicking on the shutter button and still get a high-quality picture. I hope to keep experimenting in the fields of photography. Yeongseo won in the Photography category in the 2017 and 2018 competitions.
My name is John Marrufo and I am 14 years old. I was born in El Paso, Texas; however, I was raised, for most of my life, in Bentonville, Arkansas. I am currently living in São Paulo, Brazil where I attend Graded International School. I have five sisters and no brothers…yeah I know. I love God with all of my heart and He’s the only reason I’m able to do anything of value of my life. Among sports and many other hobbies, I really love photography. I love how you have the opportunity to show people something that they might otherwise never get the chance to see. It’s in your hands to show it to them in a way that appears as close to the real thing as possible. The closer you get get to the real thing, the better and more talented a photographer you are. Striving to show people what you see and capturing moments that are truly spectacular is just one of the many reasons that I love photography.
My name is Jenny Palmer. I’m a Year 13 at Takapuna Grammar School in Auckland, New Zealand, and currently aged 17. I have been passionate about art (mainly painting and sculpture) ever since I was a child, taking it all throughout school as well as an at-home hobby. I am influenced a lot by my Japanese heritage through my art, and I am always excited to try out new mediums and techniques. So far, I have sold a few works, but this EduChange project was my first commissioned opportunity which I was very grateful for. Upon graduation, I intend to study art and Japanese in university, hopefully becoming a professional miniature model-maker for films etc.
