Due to a grant awarded by the National Art Education Foundation, I was able to have artist Cindi Ford spend the day with students. She taught them a variety of printmaking methods and encouraged them to play and experiment with the media. It was an awesome and messy day in the Art classroom that I am sure no one will forget. I am so thankful for this experience, and know students are going to use her expert tips moving forward with other printmaking projects we accomplish.
Thanks again to Paul Flickinger for giving his time and the Byron Center Fine Arts Boosters for sponsoring the visit!
Today was a great day. Not only was it Friday and Homecoming, but it was also the day that ceramist Paul Flickinger came to talk to us about clay!
Thanks to funding from BCFAB, we were able to have this great artist come to us and share his talents and experiences working with clay. This demonstration will help students when they begin their own clay projects next week.
Paul also made a variety of vessels today that he left behind to be auctioned off for our program.
The large bowl you see is going to be our auction bowl for Empty Bowls this Spring!
