Woodworking Students Watch Woodworker Carving

Students in the Wood Center at IUP collaborated on the design and production of the 2017 Pennsylvania Governor’s Awards in the Arts.

This year, the awards were presented Thursday in Lancaster. There were five awards given out, and one given to the institution.

An advanced woodworking class, instructed by Artist-In-Residence, John Hallett, built the governor’s awards into its course curriculum.

The students involved in this project were Samson Andanje (fine arts), Nicholas Gemberling (graphic design), Jenn Milkey (graduate, ceramics), John Miller, Katie Ott (graduate, woodworking), Micaela Rodas (pre-dentistry), Jonathan Simkins (senior, communications media), Tyler Stanton (graduate, woodworking), Samuel Tyson (junior, studio art) and Jesse Wolfson (studio art).
