Tristan Burns

The Student Artist of the Month for December 2019 is Tristan Burns.

  • School: Abington Heights High School
  • Grade: 11
  • Age: 16
  • Art teacher: Abigail Fenton
  • Title of artwork: “Cardinal in a Winter Wonderland”
  • Medium: Watercolor
  • In his own words: “I chose to paint a cardinal in a snowy winter setting because when you see cardinals it is usually in the wintertime. I thought as an artist that the red cardinal would contrast well against the snow. I also thought that I could use watercolor to enhance the texture of the branches, snow and the bird to create an appealing winter piece of work.”
