Judson ISD students get their art out


Tyler Hill’s paper towel papier mache sunflower. Aidethza Martinez’s watercolor octopus. Finley Scaliatine’s painted self-portrait butterfly. Garrett Walters’ pencil-and-pen Springtrap.

All mediums, all genres, all forms of expression — and all were on display April 27 at the annual Judson ISD “Art Extravaganza” that filled the aisles and concourses inside Rolling Oaks Mall with thousands of pieces of art produced by students in the district.

William Delahay, Wagner art teacher, chatted with students, parents and curious onlookers interested in finding out more about the art chosen to be displayed.

“It’s real exciting because we haven’t been able to do this since 2019,” Delahay said, referring to cancelled Art Extravaganza efforts in 2020 and 2021.

“A lot of kids haven’t had the opportunity to see their work displayed before,” Delahay said. “Being able to come here and see it up … puts it into a different perspective for them, more like a museum than in the classroom while they are working on them.”
