Bellaire honors local youth artists
On the evening of Monday, May 6, the city of Bellaire hosted a reception for talented young, local artists who had participated in the first Youth Art Contest promoted by the Bellaire Optimist Club in conjunction with the Culture and Arts Board of the City of Bellaire.
A total of 18 works were submitted by pupils from local Middle Schools with the theme “a brighter outlook for a better tomorrow.”
After due consideration, Lela Burrruto, a local sixth-grade student, was declared the winner, with eight grader Lauren White a close second and sixth grader Esha Bhavsar in third. The winners received gift certificates from Texas Art Supply, and all participants received complimentary day-passes to the Bellaire Town Square Family Aquatic Center.
