Each year the AmeriCU Syracuse Arts & Crafts Festival holds a chalk drawing contest on the sidewalk, sponsored by the Syracuse New Times.
My work colleague and friend Gina Fargnoli took 2nd place this year! Congratulations, Gina!
Gina loves turtles, so it is no surprise that she chose one as her iconography for her pastel work.
Gina was a long term substitute in art in our district last year. She taught at the middle school for the first semester of the school year. She will be working as a full-time high school art teacher this year, teaching Photography and Computer Graphics! Chittenango is lucky to have her. She is amazingly talented.
Here are some other pictures she took during the festival. I think the lion drawing took top honors!
