On May 4th, 2012, Ash Creek students in the 3rd- 5th grade entered their artwork based on Arizona images. Their artwork was entered to the Willcox Art League Spring Show that occurred May 4th- May 6th. Six students from Ash Creek won ribbons. Those winners are: Tiffany Heath, Sienna Martinez, Bethany Troxel, Levi Mines, Daniel Simmons, and Daniel Reyes. Tiffany Heath’s portrait of Cochise won Second Place in the Student Division of the show, Sienna Martinez’s Rattlesnake artwork, Bethany Troxel’s Saguaro Blossom artwork, and Levi Mines’ Apache Trout artwork received Honorable Mention. Daniel Simmons’ O.K Corral artwork won a sponsor award from the Chiricahua Historical Society, and Daniel Reyes’ Monument Valley artwork won a sponsor award from Radio Shack.
Their teacher Ms.Marvick has a lot to say about all of her students, the ones that didn’t win and the ones that did. She stated she was really proud of all the students. They had to make several choices of media and techniques during the project. She would like to thank Jen Score, the volunteer artist who organized the student’s work on the paintings.
Daniel Simmons felt great when he won $30 for his art work, although he doesn’t know what to spend it on. He also said he felt very confident when he entered his art work. Daniel Reyes won a gift from Radio Shack, and said he felt good about winning and was very confident about entering his art work. Bethany Troxel won an honorable mention ribbon, and stated that she felt amazing about winning and felt very confident like the others.
Ash Creek School is proud of the 3rd-5th grade class. We really appreciate the art and we are impressed with the hard work the students put into their paintings. Keep up the wonderful work!
