Lakewood School students Adrianna Fico won national artist of the week last week at Artsonia, the world’s largest online student art gallery.

Fico’s artwork garnered nearly 1,000 more votes than anyone in her category, said Joseph Price, Lakewood School district administrator.

Adrianna’s award winning piece is a pop-out portrait of painter Vincent Van Gogh, with an orange yarn beard, based on a self-portrait of the artist.
