Champion Creatively Alive Children

Such exciting news! One of my student's artwork from last year was selected to be a part of the 2013 Crayola Champion Creatively Alive Children event in Washing D.C. on Tuesday, September 24, 2013. Serina Long, a now fourth grader, created a cut paper snow globe collage last year in the third grade. Her collage was hanging in the Walter's Art Museum during YAM last spring and one of my supervisors then chose it for a Crayola show for the following year. It wasn't until the beginning of this school year that I found out what a big accomplishment this was. Serina's artwork is now a part of a permanent collection in Washington DC's Department of Education building! Her artwork was one of only 39 selected across the country to be a part of this event! Serina and her family attended the event where she received a plaque and an entire box of Crayola art supplies. My school also received a box of Crayola classroom supply sets! Here are so photos from the event! So proud of Serina!

Serina received a plaque with a photo of her artwork so she can always remember it since the original is part of the PERMANENT COLLECTION in Washington DC!

Serina and I. So proud of her!
