Four Klein ISD Students Receive Rodeo Art Auction Award

Four Klein ISD Students Receive Rodeo Art Auction Award

We are so proud to offer comprehensive, award-winning Fine Arts programs in Klein ISD. Our students pursue their passions and are continuously recognized for their excellence in doing so!

Recently, four Klein ISD students received awards for their Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Auction Art, despite the actual auction being canceled because of COVID-19. 

“Having four Klein ISD visual art students’ work selected for auction is high praise, indeed, for both these talented students and the standard of our visual arts program,” Klein ISD Assistant Director of Fine Arts Melinda Jahn said.

Klein ISD was named a Texas Art Education Association “District of Distinction” last year for our outstanding leadership in promoting the visual arts in our district and community. Our Rodeo Art Award recipients and their talented educators are a testament to this recognition! 

“While our visual arts teachers are talented artists in their own rights, their ability to forge relationships with their students, to know and understand their students’ strengths, to set high standards and guide their students to meet and exceed those goals – these are the qualities of our dedicated visual arts educators that shine through our students’ amazing achievements.”

Madison Gilbert from Klein Collins High School received “Best in Show” for her piece titled Safe in My Arms. 

“It feels great to be recognized alongside three other artists from Klein ISD students, and it shows that our hard work paid off,” she said. “All of the art teachers I have had encouraged me and were engaged in my artistic creativity.”

For more than 50 years, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo School Art Program has provided local students opportunities to create and display original artwork at district and area shows, earn scholarships, and travel to and attend summer art workshops. 

We are so proud that our students get to experience this incredible resource!
