[PHOTO] Kumpf Students Recognized For Participating In Navajo Nation Art Program

CLARK — Three students¬†from Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark were recently recognized for having their artwork chosen to participate in an art program.

Patricia Novy, a retired art teacher from Clark, recently volunteered at a Navajo Nation school in Cameron, Arizona. The Navajo Nation program is sponsored by a program named the Northern Arizona University Road Scholar.

Novy brought student art from Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark and Lincoln School in Garwood to show the Navajo students examples of east coast classroom art. The students at Gray Mountain Elementary School had the opportunity to view artwork such as the Statue of Liberty, a lighthouse, autumn trees, snow covered trees, and colorful graffiti names that were on display in their school. The students were enthusiastic and curious about the art on display. They had numerous questions about both the Statue of Liberty and lighthouses.
