Art portfolio students at Harlan County High School have spent the last two weeks working on a banner that will hang at the Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative (KVEC) Summit in Pineville on April 27. The banner, which is representative of Harlan County, will show people from around the state what makes Harlan County “special.” It includes tourist activities such as zip lining, ATV riding, hiking and more. The banner will contain a QR code that when scanned will give viewers an in-depth explanation of each activity pictured. This banner is part of a community project for the class. The class teaches students not only to be involved in their community, but also how to create art on a public and professional level as well.
