A Matte Matters!
The FHS art department enters several competitions throughout the year including the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and VASE (our regional art competition). In most cases, our students are expected to have their artwork matted nicely. We prefer not to charge our students to compete in these competitions, but the cost of buying matte board yearly is very expensive. A matte is so important for a quality presentation of one's artwork. We cannot enter our students without the proper presentation materials.
