"When I use paint to outline the skin of a beautiful peach, or the melancholy of an old apple, I catch a glimpse, in their reflections of… …their love of the sun; their memories of dew and freshness..."
- quote from Paul Cezanne French artist and Post Impressionist painter.
Students in High School Art classes this fall did observational drawing and painting. Their subject? Apples donated by Jim Bittner Bittner-Singer Orchards. Different classes used different mediums... Studio Art used watercolor to paint their apples. Drawing class used pastels and Portfolio used acrylic paint. When students finished their artwork they were able to enjoy the "fruits of their labor" and eat their apples.Helen P. Kelley Memorial Art Show Winners
