Students reflect on beauty

Solana Vista and Skyline Schools held their Reflections art reception on Nov. 5, showing off children’s interpretations on the theme of beauty.

Their takes on the topic ranged from nature, such as Skyline fourth-grader Gus Patrick’s tribute to the “magnificent wetlands,” to dance.

Zach Greim, a Solana Vista first-grader, had one of the most unique entries — a video of him dancing. To Zach, “beauty is dancing your heart out.”

The exhibit featured paintings, photographs, musical submissions, essays and poetry. A poem by Skyline fourth-grader Madeleine Sherler described why beauty is in the stars.

“They glisten in the night, shining high above our heads, just waiting so perfectly waiting for someone to notice how beautiful they are,” Madeleine wrote.

Peyton Hinman, a Solana Vista first-grader, created a beach with a glittery ocean and a sun with rays made out of toothpicks.

Sophia Hunsaken, a Skyline first-grader, said beauty is imagination with a painting that included a castle, a unicorn, a mermaid and a rainbow bird.

Moms got a lot of love for their beauty, too, such as Solana Vista second-grader Maxwell Kornbluth’s portrait and Grace Hurley’s essay.

“When I wake up in the morning and I see my mom, I know it’s going to be a good day,” Grace wrote. “And that is what beauty is.”
