STAMFORD—Patricia E. “Pat” Brady, head of school and lower school principal at The Catholic Academy of Stamford is proud to announce the winner of the school’s third annual Christmas Card Design project.
“Elise Fernandez, a second-grader, submitted an outstanding original design we think is worthy of being named the winner for 2019,” states Brady. “Congratulations as well to every one of our student artists who submitted their art and shared their inspirational designs with us.”
Elise’s depiction of the Nativity of Jesus will be featured on this year’s Catholic Academy 2019 Christmas card which is being sent to the entire CAS community. “We are proud to showcase our students’ faith and their creative expression,” adds Christine Wagner, principal of the upper school whose students also participated in the project.
Against a backdrop of a colorful, blue, white and pink wintry scene, Elise envisioned a 3D setting of the Nativity within a Christmas tree ornament. The ornament depicts a distant silhouette of the shepherds’ arrival at the manger, with an angel and star announcing His birth.
Congratulations to Elise and all the Catholic Academy artists. Their work will be featured in hallway displays at both schools through Christmas.
