District Art Winner: Citali Perez

The school district held an art contest in the month of February. In Mr. Lee Cook's art classes, Citali Perez from Welcome came in 3rd place. 

The students explored how to draw and paint without using contour lines (contour is the French word for outline ~think blank coloring book).  Using fuzzy familiar characters that we all knew and loved as children we drew and painted these figures using texture only.  Texture is not only the way something feels, it's the way something looks like it feels (simulated texture).

Congratulations Citali on your win and wonderful piece of art work!

Thank you!
