"Eleven" 2009 oil on canvas- Mirinda Reynolds
So it begins.....a Mirinda's view of the world.
Three years ago, The LibertyTown Visiting Artists Program began. My idea: bring the artists and art to our school, pay the artists for their time, help LibertyTown gain a following from our extended community. It is working and changing lives. Our students are enrolled in LibertyTown classes, visiting First Fridays, and bringing family and friends into our great workshops.
I will share the great moments with visiting artists at Fredericksburg Academy in Fredericksburg, VA. through this blog. My school hosts a different artist monthly to conduct two workshops with 84 nine to twelve year olds.
Our first visitor of the 2009-2010 season(I call LTVAP III) is Andrea Shreve-Taylor.
Our first visit on September 25th allowed our students time to view Andrea's art, design stained glass and tile trivets, and prepare for the molding process.
On October 9th, we mixed 150+ lbs. of concrete, wheelbarrow and all, then poured our designs in plastic molds. They will set for the weekend while we anxiously await the results.
