Next week, Bethany Stoltenburg will fly halfway across the country to see a picture she drew.

Stoltenburg, a recent Detroit Lakes High School graduate, took Dave Balfour's Advanced Drawing class last semester. For her final project, she drew a picture of her and friend Ashlyn Jasken, taken at a girlfriend's birthday party.
