Callum Grujicich goes to Carnegie Hall: our favourite kid sculptor just picked up a major medal!
Last night, awards and medals were bestowed on many super-talented young people at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City. Among them: one of the first kids that we (and you) admired, Callum Grujicich. You remember Callum: he's the young sculptor who makes dolls that are charming, sometimes slightly unnerving, and all intricately crafted by hand from materials Callum finds when he's scavenging with his brother.
Now, Callum is adding a shiny piece to his collection of materials - a 2018 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards gold medal. The award is given to young people across the arts internationally who have made outstanding work. Last year Callum achieved a silver medal, and this year he's at the top of the sculpture category.
And not to brag or anything, but previous winners of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards do include Andy Warhol, Joyce Carol Oates and Stephen King. Just saying.
