Our Lady of Sorrows (OLS) eighth-grade student Houston Alford’s artwork was recently chosen by the Birmingham Museum of Art to be displayed at the museum. His picture entitled “Man cave” is graphite on paper, drawn in one-point perspective.
In the Homewood Library’s Student Juried Art Contest, two OLS students were also recognized for their outstanding work. In the K-2nd grade category, 1st-grader Addison Jackson won the 1st-place ribbon with a mixed media drawing of Our Lady of Fatima’s Crown, while 2nd-grader Addison Praytor placed third for her drawing and collage of a dinosaur in its habitat.
“We are very excited about our students placing in these community competitions,” said OLS Art Teacher Andi Arteaga, who enjoys teaching the students how to use their creativity. “Learning technique allows a student’s talent to shine its brightest,” she said. †
