Students in Marnie Hyland's art classes will be wrapping up a cool lesson about local artists the week of Jan. 4-8.

Students learned about six local artists and then submitted voice recordings of questions for them via Seesaw. The local artists are Emily Balsley, Triangulador, Zack Zdrale, Amira Caire, District art teacher Betsy Delzer, and MHS student artist, Brittney Vo.

"I wanted to show my students that there are fantastic artists right in our community.  I chose these artists to show them a variety of styles and techniques,'' Hyland said.

All classes in grades 1-4 at West Middleton and six classes in grades 1-4 at Pope Farm are participating in this lesson, Hyland said.

"The students enjoyed generating questions and they will be viewing the artists’ responses after winter break,'' she added.
