Jason Bersamin, of Redwood Tree 8th grade, submitted an art piece for the yearbook cover art contest. His entry is now the cover art of the River School 2017-2018 yearbook. Since entering his art, he has touched up the painting, added a duck with ducklings, and frame. The title of the painting is The Pond of Dreams. When asked what his inspiration was, Jason replied “I’ve always thought that ponds are peaceful and so I thought that this time I would make a peaceful nature scene.” Jason used watercolors and created this piece in spans of and hour and a half in four days.
Jason is donating this art piece to his brother’s fundraiser art show for an eagle scout service project. In addition, he is showing and selling many more of his art pieces pictured below. The fundraiser art show will take place at an art gallery in downtown Roseville called Blue Line Arts. We thank Jason for allowing us to celebrate his talents and we wish him the best in his journey beyond Golden Valley.
