This past month, we had winners participate in a contest to win tickets to Arizona’s famous Renaissance Festival. Many students submitted great artwork, poetry and other artwork. Today, we’re featuring the top three winners. Check them out!
First place: Callie Lorentson
Callie is the first place winner with her custom-designed dress she made herself.
“This is a dress that I designed and made. When designing it, I wanted something that reminded me of say a ‘bar wench’ and had the renaissance feel to it. There are some added “steampunk” elements, including the charms hanging from them mad of gears and keys. The dress itself is an A-line dress with a boat neck. The bronze overskirt is an attachment that is hooked together, but it is hidden behind the corset. The dress can hang at its original length or be hooked to the corset to make it shorter in the front but still keep with the renaissance feel.”- Callie Lorentson
Second Place Winner: Alexi Shepard
Alexi submitted an acrostic poem with a beautiful design.
Lia sent us a majestic drawing you can see below.
Last, but certainly not least, is 12th-grade student Kaitlyn who wrote a Renaissance themed poem.
A Tremendous Treat
Once was a time where swords swung and jousts jousted.
Dresses and armor were worn, for purposes of enjoyment and laughter
Tricks and treats are plenty here
For you will travel back in time and relive what once was.
The ordinary is no longer such
To out gazed occasional wear
To boring business casual.
A time this is to bring it back.
Bring your mates and your smiles
Dance around the horses saddle
See the fire and see the royal
Fun for any at the Renaissance Festival
