Forney High School Art Teacher Named Grand Prize Winner of Art Contest

Forney High School Art Teacher Carol Adair has been named the Grand Prize Winner of the 2018 Sargent Art Brighter World Teachers’ On-line Art Contest.

Adair will receive $2,000 worth of school art supplies from Sargent Art for her accomplishment.

Sargent Art is a supplier of art materials to the educational and retail markets. All of the company’s products are certified non-toxic for the safety of students.

Adair stated that the winning artwork is an oil painting of her grandson when he was just a year old. The painting is 18 x 24 and her grandson is life size in the artwork.

“I wanted to be able to picture him the actual size and how cuddly he was when I looked at it later," Adair noted. “Children grow so quickly and it's difficult to recall details. When I do commission portraits, I like to paint the actual size so parents have that memory as well as the likeness.”
