Congratulations to 8 Finalists in Rodeo School Art Program!

This year Ms. Jenkins submitted 8 students’ work to the Rodeo School Art Program. This was the maximum number allowed per school. All 8 were selected as finalists—Ted Yun (2), Saveri Ivaturi (4), Aurelia Shaitelman (4), Zoe Clark (4), Murphy McCallum (5), Riya Hari (5), Rustin Golshan (5), and Trinity Yun (5).

Only 10 pieces are chosen from 500 HISD submissions at the ES level to move on for further judging at NRG stadium. Of those 10, Roberts students took 5 spots—Ted Yun (2), Saveri Ivaturi (4), Aurelia Shaitelman (4), Riya Hari (5), and Rustin Golshan (5).

2nd grader Ted Yun won Best of Show, the highest honor. His piece “Gray Goat” (made of chalk and oil pastels) will hang in the Hayloft Gallery in NRG stadium through the duration of rodeo.

We would like to recognize all 22 students who created pieces for consideration. Each demonstrated commitment, working hard every morning from October through December to complete their drawings, even though there was a chance that their art may not get chosen for judging.

Last but not least, a special thank you to Ms. Jenkins for her dedication to the students throughout the process.
