Scappoose High School Sophomore Christina Perry created her magnificent portrait of her grandfather Horst in Art Teacher Ms. Keith’s Art II class in the fall term 2015. Christina’s portrait was meticulously created using graphite on paper. Christina used a traditional grid method to achieve her photo realistic portrait based on a family photo. Christina explained “My grandpa passed in August 2013. He was good at art and loved working with his hands in different ways, like gardening and woodworking. Ever since I was little I looked up to him and admired him. He was my inspiration for my art. I wanted to create my own memorial for him in a way that he would appreciate. I poured my heart into the project and spent many hours working on it.”
Let's all pitch in and see if we can get the family to NYC to attend the awards ceremony! Our goal is to raise $1900.00 the cost of three round trip tickets to NYC. The fund raising deadline is April 15th, so the family has time to get tickets before the June ceremony.
NYC or Bust!
