Miranda Walton is Ben Franklin Artist of the Month for April


L-R: Matthew Ghrist, Easton High Art Teacher; Miranda Walton, Catessa Cain, EHS Assistant Principal.

Easton High Junior Miranda Walton has been selected as the Ben Franklin Artist of the Month for April.  “Miranda’s painting is a terrific example of a value study, said Matthew Ghrist, Easton High School Art Teacher.”  The painting is the first of three paintings Foundations of Art students will create, each one focusing on important art concepts like composition, color theory, and painting processes.

Students choose a reference photo, draw and then mix a single color with black and white or it’s compliment to match the light and dark values in the picture.  “Miranda is a wonderful student, enthusiastic about learning and creating art,” added Mr. Ghrist.“We are grateful to Ben Franklin Crafts for their generous support of this program, which enables us to recognize outstanding art students here at Easton High.”
