Craft in Schools: Fairfax Student Work

Craft in Schools: Fairfax Student Work

This exhibition celebrates the culmination of the second year in Craft in America’s partnership with Fairfax High School Visual Arts Magnet. On an almost-monthly basis, Craft in America has sent artist-teachers to lead workshops with Fairfax art students. From basket coiling to ceramic coaster carving, they have taught techniques that the students can incorporate in their own practices. Most importantly, the students walk away with the belief that a successful career in the arts is possible. The work in this exhibition highlight the fruits of our collaboration, which has inspired students to create, push boundaries, embrace the handmade and be self-sufficient art makers.

This exhibition was on display at the Craft in America Center April 10, 2015 – April 18, 2015.
