CAST Connection to Backus

Ms. Denman’s 4th grade class at CAST has been learning about the local history of St. Lucie County. Students learned about landscape artists A.E. Backus and The Highwaymen. To wrap up the unit, the students had an opportunity to paint En Plein Air. A student shared her new learning with family and discovered her great-grandmother was the model for one of Backus’ portraits!
