Elementary School Students Visit University to Learn about Art and History
The beautiful paintings of Honesdale artist Jennie Brownscombe, currently on display at The University of Scranton’s Hope Horn Gallery, were used to “illustrate” interpretations of history in art during a recent hands-on workshop and gallery tour for students at St. Stanislaus Elementary School, Scranton. Showing watercolor images of their family histories are, from left, Jonathon Symonies of Carbondale, eighth grade; Hannah Makowski of Scranton seventh grade; Aaron Bogdanski of Moscow, seventh grade; and Joshua Bozym, seventh grade; Colin Morgan, eighth grade; and Kevin McConlogue seventh grade, all from Scranton.
The Hope Horn Gallery at The University of Scranton received a grant from the Lackawanna County Office of Arts and Culture to fund the workshops for area students. The exhibit “An Ideal Subject: The Art of Jennie Brownscombe” is on display at the Hope Horn Gallery of Hyland Hall on the University’s campus until March 18. The exhibit is free of charge during gallery hours.
