The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo promotes the preservation of Western art by sponsoring a yearly contest. On Dec. 7, 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 where 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. This year was another big success for our Brahma art students as they expanded beyond just using basic pencil and paper!

Pastels were used in Stockdale High School juniors Marissa Sanchez and Taylor Baumann’s second-place artworks.

While Shannon Fraiser, a senior in Art III, earned a second-place ribbon with her watercolor painting of an old cabin turned church scene in the middle of the woods, senior Raven Lerma’s depiction of a buck alone in the snow-filled woods earned a third-place ribbon.

Morgan Box, a budding junior in Art III, earned a participation ribbon for her pencil drawing of a wooded area with a pair of cowboy boots and hat.

These fine artists did an outstanding job once again this year. Not everyone earns a placement ribbon. Some artists receive participation awards and are encouraged to try again next year. I can personally attest to the hard work, countless hours, and struggles that these young ladies have triumphed over.

On a personal note, I just want the Stockdale community and these talented ladies that I have the pleasure of instructing every day to know just how proud I am of them and how much I will miss those that are graduating and moving on to the next stage of their young lives!

All of the above-mentioned artwork is displayed proudly in the foyer of the Stockdale High School for viewing through the end of January 2014. Please congratulate these artists as you see them in the community and thank you for your continued support of our Brahma art students!

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