Look for Roosevelt Students’ Artwork in Community
Over the summer, SwedishAmerican Hospital reached out to RPS 205 schools about a student art contest they were hosting. The purpose of the contest was to recruit young artists to create work that promoted social distancing, handwashing and mask wearing to help combat COVID-19. Kyle Wolfe, graphic arts and video production teacher at Roosevelt Community Education Center, jumped on the opportunity and shared it with his students.
Two of Wolfe’s students from Roosevelt recently received recognition for their submissions.
Malina Rangel placed third in the competition. Her prize includes a $100 Visa gift card and $50 for the school's art department. Her work is currently on the electronic billboard on Alpine Road across from Heartland Community Church. The work will also be added to two city benches in the near future.
Liberty Schaefer was awarded an Honorable Mention, and her work will be featured on the SwedishAmerican Facebook page. Liberty used Adobe Photoshop to create a finished digital drawing of her original concept.
Kudos to Malina Rangel and Liberty Schaefer!
