GREEN RIVER — Expedition Academy High School sent 10 pieces or art to the Wyoming State Art Symposium held April 24-26 in Casper, Wyoming. Expedition Academy students brought home eight blue ribbons awarded by art teachers from around the State of Wyoming.
EA students who competed were sophomores Aris Calzada and Ceyda Gunduz and senior Laurence Leahy.
On the night before the show opened, Gunduz competed with Green River High School students and took second place in the Newspaper Fashion Show Competition. The students had a chance to see art by other students from across the state and were able to visit the Nicolaysen Art Gallery to view work by Salvador Dali.
“It was a great experience for all of our students and a special thanks to Mrs. Michelle Wickstrom for the teaching, planning, and hard work to help these students be successful,” EA Principal Ralph Obray said.
EAHS would also like to thank the GRHS Art department for letting the join them on the trip to Casper. “What a great showing for the art students of Green River,” he said.
