Students take DC trip

Students take DC trip

Several Lyon College students and professor Margaret LeJuene recently traveled to Washington, D.C. for the Art 299: Art in Context, a yearly travel course intended to bring students into direct contact with works of art they have only read about in textbooks or seen in powerpoint presentations.

Through first hand interaction with the works, students gain a greater understanding and appreciation of color, scale, texture, mediums and relationship to other works.

PRICECREW ready for Big-Time

PRICECREW ready for Big-Time

PRICECREW is made up of four brothers from Jacksonville, Arkansas. Philip-24, Zachary-21, Jacob-15 and Caleb-14; Caleb was barely two years old at that first performance but he still knew the right way to move. The crew has been singing and dancing ever since. There is something special going on when four brothers from Arkansas can sing, dance and put on a show the way PRICECREW can.

Throughout the past few years the brothers have grown to understand it takes hard work and dedication to accomplish what their dreams hold. They have played countless venues and are always looking for ways to improve their act, as well as pushing themselves to make the best music they possibly can.

Over the years they have performed at the local festivals and venues, including Riverfest and Magic Springs' Summer Concert Series, gaining popularity throughout Central Arkansas.
