Lisec, Zahourek, Duchek, Wells, Baehrens Honored For Artwork
Dorchester student Cole Lisec has been recognized for his art talent.
The Times has learned that a water droplet painting that Cole created last year when he was in the 8th grade has been selected by NebraskaLand Magazine as part of the Nebraska Statehood display.
Cole's artwork is in very select company. In total, there were only 12 student artworks from across the state selected for this honor.
We are told that Cole's parents accompanied him to the capital last month for an awards presentation.
Meanwhile, DPS junior high student Lena Zahourek's and elementary school student Jayana Duchek's state fair artwork was included in a photo presentation that won first place in the category of "Seasons in Nebraska."
In other art news, DPS students Lydia Wells (12th grade) and Baylor Behrens (3rd grade) currently have artwork on display for Youth Art Month at the State Capitol. They have been invited to a reception at the capitol this Saturday.
The Times has been informed that March is "Celebrate the Arts Month in our schools. The artwork of DPS students may be viewed online at Artsonia.com (search for Dorchester Elementary). To see DPS artwork in person, check out the school hallways for current art projects, as elementary students are getting to create their clay projects this week.
