    When thinking of art, most people likely picture paintings or sculpture.

    LaRue County High School art teacher Monique Hanna, however, was thinking beyond the easel and chisel in this year’s art camp during which her students learned not only about forging metal, but also making pottery, creating wood burning designs, and marbleizing paper.

    Twelve students attended the camp that ran May 31-June 2 at the high school. Hanna selected the students according to their grades, attendance, and work ethic.
