This morning, Drawing class students from Tecumseh High School got out and enjoyed some of the nice weather. The artists took to the Sculpture Garden, working on 'Plein Air' projects. The artists draw 'en plein air' (in the open air), meaning outdoors, on the spot. Painting/drawing in the open air is recorded as far back as the Renaissance, but was generally done in preparation for studio painting. Today, 'en plein air' painting is what much of the public pictures when they imagine an artist at work, and is favored by many semi-professional and amateur artists.
DON'T FORGET Friday, September 3rd - No School (Labor Day Weekend) Monday, September 6th - No School (Labor Day) Tuesday, September 7th - School Resumes

8th graders at West STEAM Center learning about golf this week. Health and PE teacher Kristy Zajac created a 9-hole course, called Tecumseh West Golf Course. The project is aimed at teaching students the rules, etiquette and proper form and techniques of golf. Students start out at the designed driving range and then they take part in the 9-hole course. It's a great way for the students to learn about golf and get outside and enjoy the better weather we're having.
