Schools across the nation are celebrating Black History Month, and Carolina Forest High School is no exception.

Ms. Pantuso’s Drawing Class has created a remarkable art display by hanging portraits of African-American artists throughout B house. The bold colors and realist design add an interesting and colorful road to the B House classrooms.

Karsyn Capps said, ‘’ I liked painting the artist  for Black History Month because it brought me to light of the painters that aren’t recognized. When people think of Black History, they think of Martin Luther King Jr., but we showed that there are many more important black artists. ‘’

There is an informational paper that is right beside the portraits describing the African-American artists. The purpose of the assignment was for students to learn about artists they may not have been familiar with before and to expand. The students worked in groups of two or three and completed a drawing and short summary of accomplishments to display in the hall.
The students used colored paper and black and white paint only. Was used cardboard for backing so that they would stand above the lockers.

Ms. Schultheis shared, ‘’ B House always looks good thanks to the artwork Mrs. Pantuso’s students display.’’
