She is shown above with Tim Sheirbon and his oil painting of an ocean scene. On display in the art room were many beautiful oil paintings, done by the students by brush and a painting knife; also displayed are articles such as kittens, squirrels, flower pots and other articles made out of clay. Another type of work done is known as "spulply". This is making various shapes out of plastic clay, and then baked in the kitchen oven. Plastic jugs and bottles of every shape and size have been turned into beautiful flower vases, fruit baskets, etc. Proudly holding their places amid the many pieces of art were shining animals made of foil. The latest project now of great interest is "photograming". In this, solid objects are placed on light, sensitive paper and a bright light tuned on them for a time before they go through the developing process. Some of the art work is on display in the Blue Earth, Minn, hospital and also at. the University of Minnesota. Saturday, Mrs. Lawrence Chipman and her daughters, Cindy and Linda, took some pieces of art, including oil and acrylic paintings, air dried sculptures, mosaics, hot wax painting and photograms to Drake University, Des Moines.

Cindy and Linda helped explain the pieces of art from the Burt school. Not only is the art on display at various places, but the students have also sold some their work.
