High school students in American history class at Trinity recently spent a week painting copies of works by great American artists.
Landscapes, birds and even people were subjects of the often famous paintings by artists such as George Caleb Bingham, John J. Audubon and George Inness. History teacher Ellen Sistrunk, having done a similar project with her world history classes, wanted to integrate both the fascinating history of America with an appreciation of its art and artists through this project.
The paintings are currently displayed in Trinity’s high school building.
