Every month, one student will be chosen by Ms. Euker as Artist of the Month. Students are chosen based on good behavior, hard work and passion. Chosen students will receive a certificate and have their artwork is displayed in the lobby of the Elementary school’s main entrance.
Congratulations to Amelia Davis-Stangle from
Mrs. Mayopolsky’s fourth grade class!
Art teacher Ms. Tracie Euker said that Amelia was selected as
the Artist of the Month because she is artistic and creative and
very helpful in the art room.
“I’m pretty excited that I was selected to be this month’s artist,” Amelia said. “I know it’s going to make my family so proud.”
Amelia said she enjoys art because it makes her feel relaxed. Art, she says, is a very special hobby, and she saves her favorite work in a collection at home.
Amelia has been using her hobby to make Christmas gifts for her
friends and family.
“I try to be creative,” she said. “I made a lot of Christmas cards, but I also made some things using tape, candy and markers.”
Amelia and her classmates are currently learning how to draw landscapes.
“I like to take my time drawing because I know the best things aren’t always done fast,” she said.
