SUMMIT, NJ– Oak Knoll freshman Julianna Feit, a resident of Chatham, recently won third place in the state level of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s annual Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program and Art Contest.

Feit’s piece, an oil painting of a Brant Goose, won third place in New Jersey in her age group of students in grades 7-9.

“I enjoy capturing the beauty of nature in paintings, and I believe that conservation is a very important part of nature,” Feit said.

Each year, the contest seeks to inspire youth while educating them on the importance of conservation.

Oak Knoll’s Creative Arts Director, Will Cardell, praised Feit, with whom he works with each week through the school’s art enrichment program.

“Julianna is an excellent painter with a real grasp of color theory and a blending technique that is quite sophisticated,” Cardell said. “Additionally, she observes with care and renders with great acuity.

“I can only think of a handful of art students in my more than 40 years of teaching that are at her level of natural ability and accomplishment,” Cardell added. “This young artist is quite extraordinary.”
