The reception for the Fleisher Children's exhibition was on Saturday. Our exhibitions coordinator did a great job setting up my 11-13 year olds' "Domo picnic" installation. These were created in the screenprinting course- the students did a reduction print with a more open background layer and narrowed it down to a detail layer. They had to consider the front and backs of their objects. Once printed, they were cut out, machine sewn, and stuffed. Each child made an edition of 2 so they could bring one home immediately and leave one for the show as well.
This blog will be an effort to document my thoughts and experiences in studio work, art criticism, and community education in the areas of fibers, color theory, screenprinting, and art education. Please respect my work and link back to me if you use any images and feel free to comment. I am a fiber artist from Philadelphia, teaching at Fleisher Art Memorial, and have recently completed my Masters of Art Education at Tyler School of Art, Temple University.
