Brrrrr-illiant!


Some 350 students at J.T. Roberts Pre-K-8 School at 715 Glenwood Ave. in Syracuse submitted drawings to their art teachers, who selected the best for Family Times’ seventh annual drawing contest. The artists, in grades 3 through 7, created drawings that celebrated snowflakes, snow people and sledding, among other motifs, in their illustrations of the theme “winter fun,” using either markers or oil pastels. Two designers in Family Times’ Creative Services Department chose the winner, whose drawing is on the magazine’s cover, along with five artworks that earned honorable mentions. Family Times wants to thank art teachers Tina Zhang and Tim Howard and the Roberts students who took part in the competition.

 

Winner:

Kayla Howard, age 12, Syracuse

 

Honorable Mentions:

Lily Ryan, age 11

 

Wyatt Allers, age 12
