The artwork of Wildwood Middle sixth-grade student Chloe K. will be featured in the Rockwood School District holiday e-greeting card from Superintendent Dr. Mark Miles.
Chloe's artwork was chosen from a districtwide K-12 contest featuring more than 100 entries. Chloe was notified by her art teacher, Lindsay Gamel, in a surprise announcement during art class Dec. 13.
The drawing features images of a snowman, musical notes, a reindeer and snow-covered cedar trees. A bright yellow sun shines over the scene, and featured prominently in the center is a pair of mittens, colored white and blue.
"I drew things with a holiday theme," said Chloe. "The music comes from the deer's shadow in the forest."
"It was a difficult decision," said Miles. "Rockwood students displayed some real talent in their entries."
Miles admired Chloe's artwork.
"I like the mittens," he said. "Her work very effectively conveys a warm holiday message for our Rockwood community."
