Kistler provided students with a variety of different winter cartoons and drawings to choose from. Students voted on each of the four and then completed their directed winter drawings. Kistler taught students many tips and tricks to use when sketching, including shading techniques.

“The students loved the assembly,” fifth-grade teacher Maya Guzman said. “It was an awesome experience!”
