Artwork from Green River High School students impressed at the state art symposium, as well as the high school's art show.

Shane Steiss, an art teacher at GRHS said the submissions for state art won a large number of ribbons this year.

"I'm proud of them, they really worked hard," Steiss said.

The school displayed 292 pieces of art in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional mediums and were awarded 81 ribbons. Steiss said only one fourth of the work displayed at the symposium receives ribbons.

Two student projects were also selected for display in the Capital Building in Cheyenne. The pieces were by Anna Harris, who was one of 20 2D artists selected for the honor and Hayley Henderson, who was one of 16 3D artists selected.

At the school show, welding projects were also on display, including a fire pit created by freshman Zander Swett. Swett said he built the fire pit because his parents have wanted one for awhile and found while the project was challenging, he learned a lot from its construction.

Swett said he would like to become a welder, believing the job to be a cool career.
