Several students who attend the statewide online public charter school, Oregon Connections Academy, and their parents recently participated in a creative and educational field trip to Jeny’s Heart With Art in Pendleton
During the April 12 Paint Party in Pendleton, artist Jeny Stone provided participants with step-by-step instructions so they could try their hand at a fun spring painting project. Students learned how to paint on a canvas using basic shapes with different brush sizes, different strokes and different colors.

The tuition-free school offers students the flexibility to learn at home with a curriculum that meets rigorous state education standards. Instruction is provided from state-certified teachers experienced in online instruction, as well as support from trained counselors, principals and administrative staff.
