FORT RILEY, Kan. — Contessa Grant, a kindergartner at Ware Elementary, received a BLICK Youth Art Month award for her drawing on Saturday during the Kansas Art Education Association’s Youth Art Month Competition.
Grant’s drawing was of a polar bear, for which she received honorable mention for. She also participated in a directed Zoom drawing opportunity in which she drew “Vincent YAM [Youth Art Month] Gogh,” where the students learned how to draw Vincent and could include the background and location of their choice. Grant chose the beach.
“Her mother told me she had a wonderful time. Her father is currently in Germany and he was able to get on and watch as well,” said Lizabeth Rosewicz, art teacher at Ware Elementary. “They all had a wonderful time.”
