NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- New Rochelle High School art students recently produced works on campus en plein air.

The students studied the ink drawings of Vincent Van Gogh and practiced his method of using self-made reed pens dipped in ink to draw landscapes while outdoors.

Arborist and New Rochelle resident Frank Buddingh assisted students in preparing for their projects by cutting invasive Japanese knotweed and carving reed pens from the pieces.

New Rochelle High's art students have participated in the spring tradition for more than a decade.
