Members of the National Art Honor Society at West St. John High School chose the theme “A Cartoon Christmas” for its contribution to the Children’s Christmas Tree Program at Celebration in the Oaks at New Orleans City Park.

Each member carved a cartoon character from Styrofoam and decorated it seasonally. The students also created hand-cut snowflakes to adorn the tree, which stands among those lining the walkways of the Carousel Garden and Storyland.

National Art Honor Society officers are Christina Holmes, president; Dyrianne Tuckerson, vice president; Glasia Walker and Tre’Von Barnes, treasurers; and Briana Grayman, secretary. Members include Kira Armant, Marcus Boudoin, Zian Bryant, Zo Bryant, Wonzell Dumas, Ke’ira Frank, Kidric Gray, Christopher Holmes, Kasia Lewis, Jarale Livingston, La’daja Populis, Maya Sanders, James Simon and Jamal Walters.
