Hailey Oswald's art work is memorable.
So memorable that a project she created a year ago when she was in fourth grade, was displayed at Maryland First Lady Yumi Hogan's by invitation student art exhibit this year. The work, a Victorian house, was revealed along with others March 20 in Annapolis. Her work will remain on display in the capital for a time.
Kenmore Elementary art teacher Barbara Zwilgmeyer submitted Oswald's work for the exhibit.
"The assignment was creating a victorian house using line and pattern and how it creates texture," said Zwilgmeyer. She explained that it was also an exercise in learning elements of drawing, design, and unity. "It was about combining separate shapes into a whole," said Zwilgmeyer. Completing the assignment took about six weeks.
Oswald is the daughter of Henry and Krista Oswald of Elkton.
"When my mom first told me (the art was selected) I felt so happy," said Oswald. "I love art class, it's my favorite."
