Writing to the Portraits by Dana Van Horn

Writing to the Portraits by Dana Van Horn

Lynette Smith, instructor in English, led students in a final writing project geared toward understanding people and culture in communities. Smith embraced real life learning for this project by utilizing the current exhibit, 'Portraits by Dana Van Horn' on display at the Ronald K. De Long Gallery on campus. Students developed a profile of one of the people in the portraits. Then they read their profiles for the class while classmates tried to figure out which painting it represented.
