Sept. 23, 2019—CFISD art students from Hairgrove and Hancock elementary schools and Cypress Springs and Jersey Village high schools are scheduled to be featured in CW39’s The Art Spot starting Sept. 30.
The Art Spot was created by the CW39’s Houston Morning Dose show to incorporate the community into the morning broadcast. Student’s artwork will not only be displayed in The Art Spot gallery but will be showcased live on the Houston Morning Dose show. Students will have their work displayed for a week at a time and each school can submit up to 10 pieces. Wauna Johnson, Cypress Springs art teacher, heard about The Art Spot through Twitter and reached out to CW39 about featuring CFISD students.
“This opportunity to have my scholar’s artwork displayed live on local television is extremely exciting,” Johnson said. “We have a plethora of young, talented art students that are passionate about creating art and sharing it with the world. The Art Spot is an especially rare and wonderful opportunity for our art scholars to receive community support and recognition.”
Lee Carrier, CFISD art coordinator, echoes Johnson’s excitement.
“It is an honor for the CFISD art program to be given such an opportunity to highlight student artwork through CW39,” Carrier said. “The ability to showcase student work outside of an art space is not only thinking outside the box, but it allows for student work to be accessible to all through the local news station.”
The Art Spot is open to all school districts in the greater Houston area. For more information about The Art Spot, visit CW39’s website.
