Artist In Residence - Marshfield


This was the demo (mine)...









Every child got to put brush to the painting...

We talked about values and color...

Last Friday I spent the morning at the Furnace Brook Middle School as an Artist In Residence, along with Mary Sheehan Winn and Sally Dean - how cool was that?  Extremely.  The kids were so interested, with good questions on technique, and the teachers were very supportive - they have an exhausting job - the art teachers have no time to do anything but set up and take down between classes - and Middle School kids are..... energetic.  Here are some shots - I set up a panel for me and one for them, and displayed some Daily Paintings, and explained basically what that is and why I do it (did I ever say it on my blog?).  Mary and Sally were wonderful to be with.  Afterwards we went to lunch and chilled - joined by our friend Jeanne MacFarland, another wonderful artist (who has yet to launch her website!).  On Mary's Daily Painting blog she posted a picture of me with one of the kids.

Pam, from what I could see you're going to need a few years to rest from that job! :)
