Oct. 28, 2022 - The Comal Independent School District hosted its annual Fall Art Show Tuesday evening featuring the talents of more than 100 student artists from 10 campuses. The artists were presented with medals as they stood next to their work which is on display in the district’s Support Services Building in New Braunfels.
Family members walked through the gallery of artwork, featuring the talents of students from kindergarten through high school. Each piece was chosen by campus art teachers to represent the best work among their students. Being selected is quite an honor.
“This is wonderful,” said the parents of Leah Rudley, a fifth-grade student from Indian Springs Elementary, who had one of her pieces on display. “It is nice to walk through and see all the work from elementary through high school.”
The ‘fall’ theme could be seen throughout the pieces including a Halloween-inspired gumball machine by Evalynn Gutierrez, a seventh-grade student from Spring Branch Middle School, who enjoys drawing and wants to learn about animation.
The district will host two additional art shows this school year including a Winter Art Show Tuesday, Jan. 24, and a Spring Art Show Tuesday, April 11. Both will be at 6 p.m. in the Support Services Building and showcase art pieces from different campuses.
