Fourth Grade Visits Local Artist

4th grade students pictured with sculpture.

Fourth grade had the opportunity to go and visit the local artist, Tom Risser.  Mr. Risser has donated many sculptures to BHESA and many of them are from our own students’ designs.

While at Mr. Risser’s house he allowed the students to experience his work personally. He explained to the students his reasoning behind different sculptures and why the pieces of art are so special to him. The students also found out that if you look closely at each piece of art work he has created you will find his trademark which is heart placed somewhere in his work.

We look forward to continuing to work with him in the future. This is the fifth year fourth grade has been able to work with him. We really enjoy his partnership with the school.
