Six local high schools visited us for Career Focus Friday. We gave them a tour of the art and graphics areas, but thought it would be better to demonstrate what we do, and let them have a little fun. We set up a makeshift studio with beautiful portrait light at one end and "monster light" at the other. We made a few demonstration photos, then let them go to town with their camera phones. I think we were a hit.
Ken Alexander took is design drawing class outside to work on trees. He's not the only art instructor to take learning outside the traditional classroom. From gallery and museum visits to on-site art creation we all enjoy getting out and interacting with the real world.
