WORTHINGTON -- Youths in Roxanne Hayenga's "Pinterest Live" class Wednesday afternoon were enjoying the creative process of making art. "We took a glass bottle that was kind of tall, and we were supposed to glue newspaper clippings on it," explained Max Langerud, an incoming Worthington eighth-grader.
