Congressional Award

I am thrilled out of my mind at the moment.  My student has been awarded the Congressional Art Award this past weekend!  His work will hang in the Nation's Capitol Gallery for a year.  We have been invited to Washington D.C. for a week in the summer where we will be taking part in several ceremonies and tours.  From what I've been told, we will receive a tour of the Capitol by our own Congressman, Mr. S. Reyes.
If I'm over the moon, you could just imagine how my student feels. 
I'm so glad he won, he is such a dedicated student and such a nice kid. 
He drew a portrait of his sister using a ball point pen.  It looks like a photograph.  If you are ever in the Nation's Capitol, stop by and take a look.

It has been a while since I last posted.  Directing our regional VASE event was a huge undertaking, there were over 300 art students competing to advance to state.  Now that regional is over, I just have the state event to worry about. 
My advanced kids are working on prints.  I love printing, carving the linoleum is so relaxing and therapeutic.  I think my kids are doing a great job.  I will post more images once we are completely done with the project.
Oh yeah, two more days for spring break!
