Meet the Icon artist of the month

Sophia Smucker, a Bluffton High School junior, is the Icon artist of the month.

She says, "I have taken Art 1, Design 1, and Design 2. After high school I plan to go to Goshen college and extend my career from there.

"This project was one of my favorites as it was to turn someone into a flat painting. There is no editing; it is just a simple picture of my friend who let me paint her. She was walking art."
 

Vickie Garmon is the Bluffton High School art teacher.

Wanda Stopher loves a big project, so the concept of sewing 60 comforters in 2½ years – as a way to mark her 60th birthday – didn’t feel overly daunting. With more than adequate sewing skills and a background in project management, she knew how to make a plan.

Stopher first contemplated her 60/60 project when a friend told her about Karen Kreider Yoder, who had completed a similar project in honor of her own 60th birthday.
