FALLBROOK — Three local students won awards at the California Art Education Association Youth Art Month (YAM) Show at the San Diego Art Institute in Balboa Park. Second-grader Oscar Almanzor won first place and kindergartener Cameron Thurlow won third place in the kindergarten through second grade category, while fourth-grader Taryn Ransbury won first place in the third through fifth grade category. These students, along with five other Fallbrook young people in the exhibit, studied with Marilee Ragland at Fallbrook’s The School of the Arts.
This year, 93 works from 11 public, private, parochial and charter schools in San Diego County fulfilled specifications for originality, composition, media technique and presentation. Other Fallbrook students whose works were accepted into this juried show are first-grader Jake Winters, who did a tempera and black glue painting, “Snakes in a Tree;” second-grader Temet Lugo, who did a mixed media, “Vegetable Print Bouquet;” third-grader Nadia Lee, who did a collage, “Blue Bird Chirping;” third-grader Colleen Real, who did a collage, “Plain Foxes;” and fifth-grader Brianna Real, who did an oil, pastel and watercolor, “Rainbow Vase.”
The San Diego YAM show will remain on exhibit until February 11 and can be visited Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Works from Fallbrook in the exhibit can be viewed on Ragland’s new Web site, http://www.k-6art.com, by clicking on “Kids’ Art” and viewing “Current.”
