The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo promotes the preservation of Western art by sponsoring a yearly contest. On Dec. 10, judges critiqued hundreds of student compositions from around the state of Texas with the following theme: “Western art is representational art of cowboys, Indians, wildlife, and the terrain of Western landscape.”

This contest is a major event. The top 14 high school students earn a place in a three-week art workshop in which they earn college credit at the university of their choice that is involved in this program. In addition, the top 25 first-place artworks are auctioned off and the money raised is returned to the student in the form of a college scholarship when they graduate from high school!

Stockdale High School participates in this wonderful opportunity every year. Last year and this year were a big success for our Brahma art students!

Caitlin Ryan-Granberry, a senior in Art III, earned a second-place ribbon for her pencil drawing interpretation of an Indian chief.

Lawrence Ogle, a senior in Art IV, placed third for his Wild West with cowboys blazing through a Western town.

Mikayla Rangel, a senior in Art III, earned a third-place ribbon for her pasture of horses.

Nick Bosell-Maples, a junior this year, placed third with a detailed drawing of a man walking with his rifle slung over his shoulder.

These fine artists did an outstanding job this year. Not everyone earns a placement ribbon. Some artists receive participation awards and are encouraged to try again next year; however, our Brahma artists all earned ribbons and should be congratulated on their hard work and dedication!

All of the above-mentioned artwork is displayed proudly in the foyer of Stockdale High School for viewing through the end of January 2012.

Missy Rae Rust is an art teacher at Stockdale High School.
