GREENVILLE — Greenville High School (GHS) hosted its annual Greenville City Schools’ Waves of Pride & Art Expo, March 30.

This annual event is dedicated to sharing students’ academic and artistic work from Greenville Primary, Intermediate, Middle Schools, Junior and Senior high schools. Academic departments shared their projects in a variety of ways and throughout multiple rooms in the school.

Stephanie Mikesell’s French class shared their knowledge through hand-made books. One lesson had students write fairy tale books using two different past-tense forms of French. The rules were that the students had to write and illustrate a children’s book with a minimum of three pages. Sophomore French 3 students Levi Cain and Alexa Snyder handed out french breads and cheeses to share a cultural exchange. Mikesell said she thinks learning other languages is important.

“Students can really broaden themselves,” she said.”The world is becoming so small, you can reach out and experience different cultures immediately with the internet. We also discuss other French – speaking countries in the class.”

Senior Artists in the Career Art class each had exhibits of their work. Student Kyle Maloy said the students were assigned six projects to create for their art exhibits. One was creating a word and representing the word’s meaning by drawing pictures inside of the word’s letters. Other projects included: a tree, stained glass, a close-up picture, a soft pastel and a self-portrait.

According to GHS Art Teacher Melanie Huffman, about three GHS students each year go into the art field as a profession. This night is the art students’ equivalent of a state tournament, she said. The Greenville City School District Board of Education members vote on one senior art piece to frame and hang in the board meeting room at the Anna Bier Civic Room, St. Clair Memorial Hall, in Greenville.

“This is their big night to show off their special skill,” Huffman said. “They have prepared and worked extremely hard. Some students stayed up all night to prepare for this.”

In addition to visual arts, people were treated to mini performances throughout the evening from various instrumental and vocal musical groups, including the High School Orchestra, High School Jazz Scene and The Wavaires and Concert Choir.
