Students offer welcome with art

Chandler Woods Charter Academy students recently had their very own “Art Prize” at the school. Students were encouraged to make and enter a piece of art, which were voted on to determine “winners.” There were so many good choices to pick from, but these ended up being the top three winners: the first-place winner was Joe Stuart for the pencil drawing of the flag raising WWII, second place was Carter Smith with the “Robot Ate His Homework,” and there was a tie for third place with two horse drawings, Emma Jane Andrew with a close-up in magic marker and Violet Kagey with a colored-pencil drawing.
