Seventh graders are busy toning their canvases to paint on.

St. Helen's is very fortunate to have received a donation from the Greenwalt family. James Greenwalt was a local artist who painted beautifuly. The donated items came from his studio after he passed two years ago. This donation consisted of many stretched canvases, paint brushes, portfolios, rulers, 6 easels and many, many, beautiful art books.

Thank you to Mrs. Pinzone for storing them for us while the art room was being constructed.
