PS 206 Joseph Lamb School

                               I drew a lot of red
                               envelopes because I got
                               lucky money for the
                               new year. I drew some
                               oranges. My family
                               likes to eat oranges at
                               the new year. I drew
                               beautiful flowers. I like
                               flowers. I also copied
                               some Chinese words in
                               my picture. These
                               Chinese words say
                               “Happy Chinese New
                               Year.”
                  Honorable Mention – Amy Fan
                        Seaford Harbor School




China is a country with lots of forests. In the forest lots of animals live. I
love the panda bear the most. They are part of our culture and country.
I cannot imagine China without pandas.
                                   China is a big country. China has a lot of fun
                                   places to visit. This year the famous Olympic
3rd   Place – Winnie Shi 1st Grade Games will be open in China. In my picture the
      Seaford Harbor School        five cute Fuwa Dolls play some sports. They are
                                   part of our culture. They show you that Beijing
                                   welcomes you!
                                   I drew how my family
                                   spent the day during
                                   Chinese New Year. Early
                                   in the morning, my mother
                                   went to the relatives’
                                   houses to pass out the red
                                   envelopes. My brother and
                                   I dressed in special
                                   Chinese lion costumes.
                                   My brother wore the tail
                                   part of the lion, while I
                                   wore the head part of the
                                   lion. A lot of people were
                                   already out on the street.



2nd Place - Mandy Mai- 1st Grade
  P.S. 105 The Blythebourne
                              I was born from my mommy’s stomach. I
                              live in the Bronx. I like to watch TV and
1st Place – Natalie Batista   play Hana Montana toy. I like to draw.
      Kindergarten            My art teacher read a book about the
                              Chinese New Year. She said this is the year
P.S. 96 Richard Rodgers       of the rat.
Honorable Mention – Emily Hanley
     Indian Hollow Primary School



                                    Chinese people like to
                                    do natural things with
                                    their artwork. I used
                                     the colors red, blue,
                                       black, yellow, and
                                      green. I made sure
                                    that all of my artwork
                                     was nice, pretty, soft,
                                          and gentle.
                                          I drew whisker and four
                                         sharp teeth on the dragon
                                         mouth. And I drew it with
                                            wings and colored the
                                         wings with different colors.
                                          Then I drew it breathing
                                           fire out of the dragon’s
                                         mouth. Next I drew spikes
                                         on its back and a tail with
                                             fire. And I drew the
                                         dragon curled like a snake.

Honorable Mention -Yi Hang Lu, Grade 2
         P.S. 105 The Blythebourne
                    3rd Place-Andy Hims, Grade 5
                    P.S. 169 The Sunset Park School




  The Great Wall stretches
    more than 100 miles.
Chinese dragons are used to
scare evil spirits or bad luck.
   Red is the lucky color in
China. The flag of China is
 also red. On Chinese New
 Year money is put in a little
  red envelope. I had $200
  this year. This year is the
         Year of Rat.
I drew about Chinese New Year. In my picture, I drew a Dragon and
firecrackers because Dragons are important to Chinese people and Chinese
people want to wake the Dragon that is why they used firecrackers.




                  2nd Place-Sung Han Kang, Grade 4
                       P.S. 169 Bay Terrace Elementary
                                     My Painting is celebrating the
                                     Chinese New Year. There are
                                        many people and it’s very
                                       loud with a happy feeling.
                                         The sister is feeding red
                                     envelopes filled with moony to
                                         the dancing Lion, who
                                      symbolizes wealth and luck
                                     for the New Year. . There is a
                                      firecracker next to the older
                                     brother and he is covering his
                                        ears because it is so loud!




1st Place - Amanda Weng, Grade 5
     P.S. 1 Alfred E. Smith School
                                      I chose to draw this
                                     picture because it was
                                    about my culture and I
                                    love Chinese New Year.
                                    Chinese New Year is the
                                   most fun and interesting
                                     holiday in China. My
                                    drawing includes much
                                   red color because the red
                                   color brings good luck! I
                                  chose the mouse as part of
                                  the character “FU” (luck)
                                   because it represents the
Honorable Mention Zhou Lin Wang
                                  Zodiac animal of this Year.
       Grade 8, J.H.S. 185
  I made a drawing of a rat in
    celebration of the Chinese
  lunar New Year. Aside from
    the rat, I incorporated the
  color red as much as I could
  because red represents good
 fortune and happiness. I also
       included the Chinese
   character “FU” to bring in
good luck. I added circles with
  views of mountains inside to
   let the viewer have a closer
look at the details in my work.
 The mountains were inspired
      by traditional Chinese
       landscape paintings.


Honorable Mention –
Cheyenne Julien MS/HS 225
Theatre Arts Production
Company School
         I had a very fun time drawing
     this picture. It was a sudden idea
     for me to draw a mouse painting a
     dragon, and I wanted to not only
     imagine it, but to immediately
     draw it as well. It was much of a
     challenge; which I overcame, to
     my satisfaction and relief.
       The poem in the lower left
     corner is about how a person is
     waiting for letters from home,
     which has to do with soldiers
     being in Iraq, who are probably
     waiting for the day that they can
     finally return home.




3rd Place - Vitoria Wei Grade 8
   Manhasset Middle School
                                  The reason I painted a rooster is
2nd Place - Lin Yin , Grade 7     because in Chinese culture the
 J.H.S. 189 Daniel Carter Beard   rooster is a reminder that we
                                  should get up early and have
                                  courage.
I drew a pumpkin, and with
  a rat sitting on it. Also, I
added two more rats under
the pumpkin, so that would
make it realistic. On the top,
   I drew some chilies and
  corns to make the whole
  drawing "propitious" as
 what Chinese people call it




1st Place - Yi Jie Yang
MS 67 Louis Pasteur
    Middle School
画中的鼠怀抱葫芦扣     Honorable Mention – Zeng Zi Liang
一个“咬”字。相传        William Cullen Bryant High School
是鼠咬破混沌,泻出
阴阳。鼠腰和鼠前爪
图案的黑白也分别意
寓“阴”“阳”二字。
白色的是2008年奥运
会的标志,黑色的是
“鼠”字的甲骨文。
葫芦上的谷物图案象
征传说中鼠为人类带
来的谷种。身后的油
灯则代表民间儿歌中,
鼠用自己的尾巴吃到
灯油的机智。油灯上
的火焰不仅象征传说
中鼠为人类带来的火
种,也代表08年北京
奥运圣火。灯柱上的
橄榄枝意为世界的和
    平。
   我的作品是關於中
   國古代的“仕女
   圖”。明清時期是
   仕女圖發展時期。
   “仕女圖”不但展
   現了古代女性的美,
   更具有獨特的時代
   特色。



  3rd Place - Qi Ting Huang,
          Grade 10
Manhattan Comprehensive Night &
        Day High School
荷花是我國的傳統名花。它具
 有花葉清秀,花香四溢。有
 迎驕陽而不懼,出淤泥而不
 染得氣質。所以荷花在人們
 心目中是真善美的化身,吉
 祥豐興的預兆,是佛教中神
 怪淨潔的名物,也是友誼的
 種子。我真心希望, 荷花文
 化能在弘揚和平、和諧文化
 的進程中,也能被更多的人
 所了解和熟知。

  3rd Place, Leing Zhang,
          Grade 9
    Bayside High School
                           This picture I drew is from a
                           photo that I took during the
                           travel in China. When I saw the
                           Great Wall for the first time, I
                           was amazed by its infinite length
                           which seemed not to end at all.
                           My work shows celebrating of
                           the Great Wall, great Chinese
                           culture with a show of fireworks
                           in the night sky. I didn’t draw
                           the end of the wall because it
                           never seemed to be end. It fades
                           away in my picture. The reason
                           that I drew the Great Wall is
                           because I had the firsthand
                           experience of visiting itand and
2nd Place – Seo Yoon Koo   learning about it.
    Jericho High School
這幅作品是一幅描述中國文
化的鉛筆畫作品,我以爲中
國文化樸實且自然。所以樸
實的黑白風格比較適合這個
主題。作品中的石獅兵馬俑、
天壇、熊貓等等。無論哪一
樣都是中國所獨有的特色。
這都是中國人智慧與汗水的
結晶。而將這一切“包圍”
起來的是由長城所變化成的
龍。因爲中國文化博大且歷
史悠久。並不是單單用一樣
文化產物所能表達的。所以
我選擇了使用多樣性的“代
表”來表現主題。而龍與長
城將這連接起來,來增加整
體感。這幅作用重點在於表
達中國各個文化緊緊相連,
不能彼此分離,並且豐富多
彩。
