McKenzie is the daughter of Erin and Jerry Cheney and is in 10th grade. At school she is involved with Peer Helping and EPIC. Her other hobbies and interests and include photography, videography and creating other art pieces.
When asked if she's always been interested in art, she said a little bit... She thought she wasn't very good at first but is improving with practice (and her art teacher agrees!)
In this picture, McKenzie is holding an observational mixed media artwork that she created after studying a Polaroid camera she found in the art room.
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.
