Artist Biography: These art students are currently enrolled in either the Art IV, III, or II Major class as part of the Mechanicsburg Area Senior High School curriculum and are members of our National Art Honor Society. The students worked together to develop a theme for the rain barrel – initially there were over 7 ideas generated as a theme for the rain barrel and the idea of the solar system seemed to be the most popular of the ideas. This project was not part of the curriculum and in order to complete it, these students worked on the rain barrel during their study hall time, lunch periods, and stayed after school to work additional hours. As this was a “group” project, they needed to work together to determine how to complete the project while accommodating different artistic styles and ideas.
