Bayshore Christian School Student Art to be Featured at USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital

Last spring, Vicky Nix Cook, a community art liaison for Bayshore Christian School asked the school’s Art Department to participate in a local school art display for USA Children's & Women's Hospital. Vicky brought a large canvas to the school and the only instructions were to use the color sea foam green and an ocean theme. 

BCS senior, Anna Thornton, eagerly took the project under her wing. She chose an octopus subject matter, laid out the composition, and decided on a color scheme complementary to the sea foam. Anna began working on the painting in May, using acrylics as her medium. She met with BCS Art Instructor Carson Baker several times over the summer to work on her painting. Her amazing octopus was completed in August, just in time for the beginning of school. 

The painting is currently on display in the school office. In a few weeks, it will be delivered to the hospital. Anna has been invited to attend a special reception for all of the participating artists. Our hope is that the Anna's wonderful artistic talent and her octopus painting will be a happy blessing to everyone visiting the hospital. Great job, Anna!
