PLAINFIELD – Artwork by two Lincoln Elementary School students was recognized at the state level in the National PTA Reflections art program.
Drawings by third grader Cayden Hockman, and fifth grader Morgen Jellovitz were displayed at the “Spotlight” Event at Millikan University in Decatur on April 30.
It is the first time Lincoln has earned such recognition in its eight years of participating in the program.
The National PTA Reflections program encourages children in all grades to create an original work on a common theme in any medium. This year’s theme was “Let Your Imagination Fly.”
Hockman titled his drawing “Comical Randomness” and Jellovitz named her work “Tropical Destination.”
Jellovitz’s piece reflects her desire to live somewhere tropical such as Hawaii where she could see volcanoes and the ocean.
Hockman’s drawing illustrates that time really flies while you are having fun. He drew a pocket watch flying through the sky and an eagle to show we have freedom in our imaginations.
Hockman said he is working on a book with a friend. Jellovitz said she loves to do watercolor and weaving.
Lincoln Elementary School art teacher Lisa Worsley said participation in the PTA Reflections program was voluntary and the students created their works outside of school.
