CLHS’ Christensen Places Fourth in Rodeo Art Contest

Canyon Lake High School student Anise Christensen won fourth place for her sculpture at the Rodeo Austin student art contest. Her piece will be auctioned off in March and she will receive the proceeds.

Canyon Lake High School (CLHS) student Anise Christensen placed fourth in Rodeo Austin’s student art contest this week, an all-time best for the school.

Her sculpture was one of 366 works of art submitted for competition on Friday. Only 40 pieces are selected to be auctioned off for scholarship money in March, according to Art teacher Nell Anderson.

“Each year a select few of our students compete in the San Antonio and Austin’s livestock rodeo art contest,” she posted on Facebook. “It is a very difficult competition to compete in, and we either win a top 50 in the San Antonio contest or we place in the top 20 at the Austin Rodeo.”

Anderson said Liliana Eyster and Lexi Hettinger also competed, and received favorable response about their artwork.

“We have some immensely talented students here at Canyon Lake and all they need is a little bit of encouragement and faith from us,” she said.

    Someone should have taken a better photo of this student. The top of her head is lopped off. The larger
    version doesn’t do her justice either.
