Day 1 - Fine Arts Center Residency



Today was my first day of the Fine Arts Center Residency.  In addition to having all the art students
come into the gallery for an informal introduction, I made 6 pieces of fabric that I plan to use in a new composition which I will make on site.


These photographs are a little rough but perhaps they will give you the general idea.


Tomorrow I will be giving a power point presentation to both the morning and afternoon groups.  The students already asked some great questions during the informal meeting so I can't wait to hear what they have to say tomorrow.

I can't help of feel a tinge of jealousy when I see the opportunity that this school offers students in Greenville County.  Their facility matches any college program I've ever visited.  Fabulous!

Thank you for spending time at Studio 24-7.
If you have a talented child, give them the best 
education you can.  You will be repaid
many times.

  4. Terry,

    The pieces look intriguing... a bit reminiscent of sheets of music or old parchment foolscap. I hope you enjoy your Residency as much as you are letting us...
