My fabulous Stitch and Surface students finished up their feathers for Jude and brought them in this week. I can't wait to send these off to her!
In creating these feathers we talked a lot about various forms of collaboration. Personally I think collaboration is a vital part of being a contemporary artist, and including collaboration in the classes I teach to both adults and children is a form of community building and social consciousness-raising.
I'm going to wait till next week to mail these off in case any last contributions arrive. Then I hope they'll show up on the pages of the Magic feather Project. For more info go HERE.
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.
