YOUNGSVILLE — Fawne Hackman, 10th grade Youngsville Middle High School, recently spent a morning engaged by the virtual conference presented by Edinboro University’s Art Department.

Fawne attended sessions such as Action, with Animation Professor Michelle Vitali, Unusual Spoons with Jewelry and Metals Professor Sue Amendolara, and Sketchbook Strategies with Drawing and Painting Professor Geoff Beadle.

“I enjoyed learning more about making jewelry even though it was about spoons I could still learn a lot,” Fawne said. “I also enjoyed illustration because I didn’t know a lot about what they were presenting. I enjoyed learning some of the students didn’t always choose what they went for but they still went and they still loved it. This is going to inspire me for art, to do art and for life.”
