Lions Den

My Studio in Art 8th graders created these illustrations for the annual Lions Club Peace Poster contest. The theme this year is “Dare to Dream”. I added a component – lions. I wanted lions somewhere in the posters. And I got lions. Beautiful lions! I am amazed at the quality of this artwork. This represents six or seven weeks of work from idea to rendering, to colored pencil application.

Posters will be on display at the Sullivan Library Community Room, Chittenango, New York during November and December 2023. The winning entry will move on to the Regional competition, followed by a State contest and the chance to win the $5,000 International prize.

Can you guess which poster is our winner?

The Wild

The Wild Animal Park is right around the corner from where I work and – wow – I had no idea! It is a zoo experience with a petting zoo and animal farm, as well as a safari component.

My friend Elaine is in town from Florida, so we decided to explore The Wild on Friday evening. It was a lot of fun. The space is clean. The animals are well cared for and happy, especially the giraffe. So fun! It was just this incredible gem of an experience!

The Wild is located at 7621 Lakeport Road, Chittenango, New York 13037. Call (315) 510-3347 for more information.
