Afternoon Art: Kids Edition
The Texas General Land Office recently announced the winners of the 2012 Adopt-A-Beach Children’s Art Contest, and a Dallas student took the top prize! Beating out over 4,000 other entries, 11-year-old Clayton Graves wowed the judges with his colorful drawing, which cleverly intertwined a powerful message: “Trashing Texas Beaches Isn’t Cool.”
Clayton, a fifth grader at J.P. Starks Elementary School, will get to see his artwork grace the cover of the 2013 Adopt-A-Beach Children’s Art Contest Calendar. In addition, the young artist will have quite the summer vacation — he’s also won a Caribbean cruise, two round-trip airline tickets, and a class party at Schlitterbahn Waterpark in New Braunfels.
