Wyeth, Gilbert Stuart, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Norman Rockwell, Mary Cassatt, Romare Bearden, Dorothea Lange and Martin Puryear. These images will enhance art, library and classroom learning in a wide range of subject including American history, social studies, writing, literature, art and civics.  Click on the picture to access the Picturing America website.

    Hilltop Elementary School is the recipient of the National Endowment for the Humanities We the People “Picturing America” Bookshelf  grant.  We the People "Picturing America" Bookshelf  is the literary complement of NEH’s Picturing AmericaSM visual arts project. Instead of paint, marble, silver, or glass, words are the media used to portray significant themes in American history and culture. Readers are invited to steer their way across the continent by river with Lewis and Clark in 1802, travel the railroad with Robert Louis Stevenson in 1879, or drive along the open highways with John Steinbeck and his dog Charley in 1960. Through the life and poetry of Walt Whitman emerge powerful images of the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln; through the life and lens of Dorothea Lange we witness the impersonal forces and human faces of the Depression.  Click on the picture to access the We the People website.
