The Aquiesse Award
Brianna Rocha, a 17 year old junior at Carpinteria High School, did a pencil drawing of her grandparents but decided it needed something more. She asked her grandmother what her favorite flower is and added orchids to her drawing. Her grandfather told her that his favorite growing thing was a “healthy green pine tree”. Then she asked her grandfather to say something about his wife and he answered, “Estoy muy feliz con mi esposa y eso es la verdad.” (I am very happy with my wife and that is the truth.) This statement is proudly declaimed across the portrait like an emblem in an award ceremony. Brianna is enjoying taking art in Ms. Rochweitzer’s class and hopes to continue with more classes.
