...I posted about my student Antonio winning the high school category for the district holiday card competition...but this was another 'win'! Antonio's entry was awesome, but I knew it didn't show off the style that he is most known for...so the morning of his board meeting recognition I asked him if he would want to custom paint a necklace for me to wear to the meeting that night so that in the photo's I could showcase his art even more- he agreed! I brought a large statement necklace from home and paper mached the back of it during my planning, then added a layer of white acrylic paint to give him a nice surface to work on. He came in 7th period and came up with a style showcasing his signature designs and vibrant colors- and I wore it to the board meeting! Winning!!
