2017 Holiday Card Artist

2017 Holiday Cd Winner BANN

Middletown Area School District congratulates 8th grade student, Lauryn Baylor,
for being selected as the artist for the District’s 2017 holiday card.

MAMS Art Teacher, Mrs. Stacey Miller, challenged her students to create a wreath for the 2017 holiday card. Wreaths greet visitors to a home that is full of holiday traditions and festivities; what a way to bring in season’s greetings to all our friends. Students used basic watercolor techniques such as washes, textural effects with salt and plastic along with overlapping colors to produce shadows and depth. What each student chose to decorate their wreath with was where their creativity shone through decorative elements.

A handful of art selections were displayed for blind voting at the Central office. Lauryn’s piece received the most votes and was used to create the holiday card which is pictured below. Lauryn exhibited strength in color and meticulous attention to detail. The card is sent to District vendors, business partners and local and state officials. Congratulations to Lauryn on this tremendous honor!
