It has become a tradition that at the end of each school year, the Watertown Unified School District purchases two art pieces from graduating seniors for display at the Educational Service Center (ESC) and at Watertown High School. Pictured are the two selected art pieces – “Out of the Hat” by Ryley Wolfe held by WHS Art Instructor Dave Pawl (pictured at left), and “Blue Symphony” held by artist Rae Heier. Wolfe’s artwork is set for display at the ESC, and Heier’s work can soon be viewed at the high school. The seniors were recognized for their artistic achievements at Monday evening’s Board of Education meeting.

Ameera Alouqui is a special little girl with a BIG talent. A recent 5th grade graduate of Schurz Elementary School, Ameera’s art club instructor, Mrs. Tahera Horstman, is shining a spotlight on Ameera’s extraordinary drawing ability. Ameera’s artwork has been recognized in the National Celebrating Art Contest and her peers chose another of her drawings as the image for this year’s Schurz Art Club T-shirt. Ameera said she enjoys drawing animals and figures of humans best, and finds happiness in the time she spends with her sketchbook. The drawings featured below were drawn free-hand by Ameera. The self-portrait was inspired by the purchase of a fancy umbrella at a yard sale, and sketching angels and anatomy is also of great interest to her. Mrs. Horstman said Ameera has an “amazing gift of seeing shapes, proportions and space layout – she works hard and finishes every piece she starts.” She added, “I envision her as a very successful free-lance artist who will build a name for herself making special commission portraits and figure art, or perhaps as a creative illustrator/media specialist for large corporations.” While contest opportunities are limited at Ameera’s age, Mrs. Horstman recently entered Ameera’s work in three youth judging opportunities and is eagerly awaiting the results. “Ameera has grown tremendously while in our art club,” she said. “I have witnessed her emerging talent since first grade, and her fear of taking risks because she always strives for perfection. After winning her art club logo design, and being published in the National Celebrating Art contest, Ameera gained her confidence in so many ways with her art and life!” Keep growing your amazing talent, Ameera!
