On November 21st, students from the Studio Art class took a field trip to The Albright Knox Art Gallery. Students explored famous pieces of art through a guided tour. They saw pieces by Picasso, Van Gogh, Pollock and many more famous artists. Students also explored the featured exhibit called, Out of Sight! Art of the Senses. Artwork within this exhibit explored the human reaction to sight, sound, smell, touch and even taste! Students enjoyed the trip and were talking about the experience for many days to follow.
We are learning how to use Photoshop in photography class. The project we are currently working on involves taking two animal pictures and combining the face of one animal and placing it on the other animals body. Below is my example of a hybrid animal I created taking a toad and an alligator.
This week the photography class is learning about photo-montages. We learned about David Hockney and we looked at some of his works. Our new project is to take 20 pictures of one subject and make our own photo montages by putting the pictures together in a creative way.

Students will take away useful information for their future goals. Whether it be starting a new business, how to get hired, working for large or small companies and how to be the best employee they can be.
What do you get when you take a classroom full of eager students, an exciting project, and automobiles? You get Mr. Bennett’s Principles of Engineering class! This group of students have been working diligently on converting solar power into hydrogen to create fuel, in which to run small class made vehicles.
This is a big ticket item that is actually happening in the automotive field as we speak. Projects like these help students to understand where the future could take them as an engineer or scientist. In a few years we could be buying and driving cars using the same methods on a larger scale, maybe even built by Lyndonville Alumni! The future is happening now here at Lyndonville!
