November's Artist of the Month is Ella Riedeman. Ella is the daughter of Allen and Gretchen Riedeman and is in 8th grade. At school, she is involved with volleyball and band.
In the photo, Ella is holding her "Artists Observe" artwork. She brought in a little turtle keychain to look at closely for her artwork. Ella typically prefers to work with drawing pencil on her artworks, but she really pushed herself to notice details in her object and create it realistically with paint.
How to be an artist of the month...
An artist of the month goes above and beyond what is expected in the studio. The student explores new ideas and materials, takes risks, learns new skills, helps others, is persistent and focused and is a positive member of the studio.
