  • Beyond the easel and chisel

    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.

  • Keeping an edge

    William Pearman is a rising senior at LaRue County High School who has a hobby that is quite unusual:  he uses a forge to produce professional-quality knives.

    Pearman demonstrated his skills to fellow students enrolled in art camp at LCHS last week by forging a steel sword.

    “He is one of the most talented young men I have ever known,” said Monique Hanna, LCHS art teacher and camp director.  “He is gracious, smart, witty, and humble…the best of what his generation has to offer.”
