I'm so excited to have a great space to work in downtown Greenville with a community of very talented artists! Moved in some of my gear this weekend and will start working out of the new space at the first of the year! Lots of new work and at First Friday's to come soon!
This is a project that I worked on last semester for my Digital Media for Educators course. We were to make a teaching tool using digital media. It's a rough, but funny animation using Flash CS4 to explain the clay making process from start to finish as short as I could make it, while still covering all of the process and keeping students still interested.
Went to Baltimore Clayworks today to view the show "More than skin deep." The show was full of pieces with decals, silkscreen, and other printmaking based techniques that I have been experimenting with. Also, it had a lot of pieces playing with texture that really made you want to touch it. Today was just what I needed to get motivated to get back in the studio and produce some great work!
I just registered for fall classes at Corcoran College of Art and Design and I'm extremely happy with my schedule! I start classes on the first week of September and I will be taking 13.5 credits for my first semester. I'm taking my core art education classes ED6020 Development, Behavior, and Learning, ED6060 Digital Art for Educators, ED5000 Graduate Art Education Core, and FN5000 Graduate Studio Foundation. But the class I'm most excited for is CR1400 Clay loves Printmaking! Yes, that is the actual name of the class! Here is the course description :
Last Saturday July 18th, 2009 I participated in the Mill to Moon Festival up in Slater, SC. This was a community festival celebrating the history and people of Slater, SC and their efforts towards our trip to the Moon in 1969. I set up as a crafter and spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon selling my pottery, talking to the locals, and listening to Blue Grass. What a great way to spend my afternoon and talk about my art!
I have taught swim lessons before, I use to be a dance teacher, and now I have officially taught as an art teacher! When paint is involved, it is definitely a different way of teaching! I taught 2 classes of 5 and 6 year olds at Explore the Art Camp held at the Fine Arts Center. It was a wonderful experience for me because I was teaching along side a staff that taught me art when I was younger. I feel like I have come full circle and I know that I have made a good decision about going to grad school for education.
