Not just one but two Comal ISD student art pieces will be displayed in the YAM State Capitol Artwork Exhibit in Austin next month.
Liliana Eyster, a junior at Canyon Lake High School, and Daisy Skolaut, a second grader at Hoffmann Lane Elementary School, were told of the honor by their art teachers, Nell Anderson and Carla Shipley.
Eyster’s piece was an assignment for her Drawing II class at CLHS tasking students to use ballpoint pens to shade a drawing. The result is truly amazing.
Skolaut’s piece was an assignment as well for her art class. It is a self portrait using mixed media.
The exhibit is part of Youth Art Month (YAM), which is celebrated in March, and features student artists from across the state of Texas from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade in public and private schools. The 2019 exhibit will begin with a display at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum from March 3-17 and continue March 24-31 in the lower rotunda of the Texas State Capitol Building.
