To reward excellence by middle School art students I give out A.R.T. Superstar tickets to be entered for drawings for special prizes. I post the acronym A.R.T (Always do your best work, Respect God, self, Art room, and others, and Try new things) on the wall in my room, and I try to give the student a ticket when I see A.R.T. in action. Monthly winners are drawn from a box (much like the Act of Mercy process), and September’s winners are, drumroll please………Gracie Weichman, pictured, (sketchbook winner) and Andrew Pielli (free dress pass winner). Keep up the great work, middle school artists!
