Artistic H Buddies

This week Hailey and Hank were featured in the school district's art show.  The art show consisted of 600 pieces of art from 5 elementary, 2 middle and 1 high schools.  Out of over 5,500 kids, our H buddies made the cut.
 Hailey's passion is art.  At home when she is not doing school work, she is drawing.  Her room is like a gallery with her masterpieces covering the wall.  Some tweens hang up posters of Justin Bieber, Hailey hangs up her incredible art! :)
 The assignment in class was a self portrait.  She completed the assignment so quickly she had time to do a free draw.  So she drew this more stylistic one.  The teacher liked it so much she put both pieces in the art show.
 Pretty amazing for 12 years old.  I have a feeling this will be the first of many art shows in her future.
 Little Hank also had his "Mountains" chosen.  His teacher excitedly informed me that he was one of only 4 Kindergartners from his school to be in the show.
It was fun to see all the beautiful art that children are capable of.  It made me sad to think their art programs will be cut in half next year. Art is a valuable part of a well rounded education and very important aspect in our family.   Hopefully the voters will get it together this year and restore art, music and PE next year.
