USD 430 South Brown County’s Fine Arts Department and the Horton High School Art Club recently received charitable donations from the Golden Eagle Casino, two private donations, Kickapoo Housing Authority, and a grant from Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation Charitable Contributions to help purchase a much needed piece of equipment; a new Monotype-Etching Press from for the art program.

The grant and donations benefits both current and future students participating in the District’s Visual Art Program at Everest Middle School and at Horton High School. These donations will help fund a much-needed upgrade for the Visual Arts Program through the purchase of a new Conrad Monotype-Etching Press. The new printing press will replace the antiquated technique of using rolling pins to transfer student etched images onto printmaking paper.
