James Yeu is a person who gives his artwork away to fellow students and teachers as a way to connect with others. Nebraskans for the Arts is giving back to Yeu by awarding him with the Student Spotlight in the Arts award for November.

Yeu, a Lincoln High School senior, is an extremely talented student in art. He excels in visual arts and makes incredible sketches of other students and teachers. What is unique about James is that he gives most of his artwork away to the people who sit as he sketches their likeness on paper.

“I can’t remember a time when art was not a part of my life,” Yeu said. “It is a way for me to connect with others.”

His nominating teacher, Sam Russel, said, “James is an incredible artist. His artwork can be seen throughout Lincoln High, because he shares his passion for sketching with everyone.”

“James has begun to explore sketching landscapes and is also an up-and-coming musician, playing the guitar,” Russel added.

” Russell said “I feel like he will go into the profession of art like I said the picture that he drew of me was haunting but neat and that is what I think makes people feel good about his drawing.” Russell said

“I want to draw more and become an Artist.” James said “I want to go into the Profession of Art.”
