GHS students to offer art classes

(L-R) Ashley Burton, Alleyna Edmondson and Maitland Martin will offer upcoming art classes.

GRANGEVILLE — A Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) for FFA/forestry class has brought three Grangeville High School young women together.

Senior Ashley Burton, junior Truth “Alleyna” Edmondson and freshman Maitland Martin have joined forces as “The Art-Some Trio” for their SAE. The project represents 20 percent of their class grade for Ms. Katie Mossman.

“We all really enjoy art, and we wanted to do something in that field,” Martin explained.

The three will be offering art classes in various mediums: Martin in acrylic and sketching mediums; Edmondson in abstract spray paint; and Burton in photography.

“I want to make sure people know – we are amateurs who have skills in certain areas and we want to share our knowledge; we are not professional artist or teachers,” Martin emphasized.

Edmondson said the project is already teaching them time management and cooperative skills as well as the ability to figure out finances — including how to pay for supplies and what to charge for classes – and planning.

“We want the experience to be for all people, so the fees will be minimal while still allowing us to cover our costs and earn a little bit,” Burton added.

Pilot classes will be held in November and if the classes are successful, the group will continue the classes through May. They will be held at GHS in Ms. Mosman’s AG Room from 3:30-4:30 p.m., once a week.

For details call 208-507-1762 (Edmondson) or 208-553-2733 (Burton) or e-mail Leave messages which will be returned ASAP. Note the spray paint class will be for those 15 and older; additional classes will be for all ages.
