Tyler McConkey Wins Art Design for School Planner

Tell us about your most recent art win to be on the cover of the school planner?

Well, last year I entered the contest and I got second place.  So, I really wanted to win this year and when I found out that I did win, I was so excited!

How did you feel when you found out that you won?

When I won, I felt so happy!  I knew that I had worked really hard on my drawing and to win was an amazing feeling!

How did you come up with the piece that got picked to win? Does it have any special meaning to you?

Last year, when I entered the contest, I did a drawing very similar to the one this year, so I decided to do the same idea this year.

What types of art are your favorites?

My favorite type of art is using pastels.

Is there a median that you would like to explore that you have not done yet?

Someday, I would like to sculpt.

What is the best thing about attending Freedom Academy?

I love everything about Freedom Academy.  I have so many good friends, and teachers, who I love to spend my day with!

Tyler is a 6th grader at Freedom Academy North Campus
