Students from the high, middle and elementary schools hopped on a bus and traveled across the river to visit Olana and The Thomas Cole House. There they learned about the owners of the homes, architecture, the historical time period and discussed the art work that was on display. At both locations all students and teachers took out their sketch books and practiced their plein air drawing skills. The day we went to Olana was the first time they allowed photos to be taken of the inside of the home. Many students were thrilled to have this opportunity.

3D Printer Visits Greenville Art Room
During the month of December the high school students had the opportunity to test out a MakerBot 3D printer. Students could come in outside of class and after school to test out the equipment. Printing was fascinating and groups of students would stop by to see how the technology worked. Most students printed objects that were predesigned by a professional but some students tried their hand at building pieces themselves. Greenville is planing on purchasing a 3D printer in the future, but we are waiting until the technology is perfected.
