Art made by EHS students now on display at OKC credit union

ENID, Okla. — Art prints made by Enid High School students are on display through the end of May in the lobby of an Oklahoma City credit union.

Rachel Meinke, marketing manager at Oklahoma Educators Credit Union in Oklahoma City, said the 21 works of art have garnered a lot of attention from visitors to the credit union.

“They are very thoughtful, creative pieces,” Meinke said. “They’ve drawn the eye of a lot of our members. Many people have stopped and looked at them. We are very happy to offer our lobby as a venue for that.”

The art was created by 18 students in Laurel Notley’s Design and Art 1 classes. Notley explained the process of making the prints.

“Monoprints are done on glass drawn upon with water-soluble oil pastel,” Notley said.

After the paint is applied to the glass, a damp sheet of paper is laid over it and then burnished to transfer the paint to the paper, she said. The first print made is the monoprint and the second is called a ghost print.

Students also made “glue prints.” Using glue and ink to create the design on a glass plate, the plate is then pressed onto the paper to transfer the print.

The students whose work is on display include Emily Angleton, Makaila Brown, Morgan Cline, Ayden Cockrel l, Shelbi Fore, Branan Glover, Isaiah Huntley, Briona Kunard, Josey Lockwood, Caleb Long, Chandni Mangu, Mikoj Missions, John Pace, Tanner Perosi, Johnathan Roberts, Zahira Rojo, Makinna Schollenbarger and Holly Smith.

The art can be viewed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at 6001 Northwest Expressway, Oklahoma City.
