Talented Art Students Create Quilt
On Oct. 25th, Mandeville High School was among many participating schools from St. Tammany Parish at The Kids Pavilion on Koop Drive. This year's festival celebrated "Americana." The Talented Art II and III students collaborated on a quilt partially inspired by the work of the self-thought Louisianan folk artist, Clementine Hunter. The quilt combines modern and traditional elements, giving it an imperfect yet accurate reproduction of Hunter's work. Students also created vases inspired by the work of Hunter.
