Claire Taylor, a student at Snow Elementary School in Middletown, created the artwork on this week's cover. "Oil Paste Flower" was done in Georgia O'Keeffe style, which Claire admires. "I like how she blended the colors together and how the flowers went off the side of the picture," she says.
In addition to creating art, Claire likes to sing and dance and hopes to be a kindergarten teacher when she grows up. Claire's artwork, along with dozens of other pieces by Middletown students, was to be featured in a yearlong exhibit at the Middletown School District headquarters, on Hunting Hill Avenue in Middletown.
