Fairfax Student Work reception this Saturday
Since inaugurating our educational outreach program with LAUSD’s Fairfax High School Visual Arts Magnet in 2013, we have hosted the students at our Center and brought artists to the campus for a variety of hands-on workshops. As a celebration of this partnership, we are holding an exhibition of selected projects that the students have created over these past two academic years. The breadth of their work and the way that these students have taken an interest in the essence of craft is inspiring.
The current exhibition of student work, which was designed and installed by the students and teachers, ranges from ceramic cups inspired by artist-veteran Ehren Tool and photo collages as inspired by Hidde Van Dyum, to coiled baskets as demonstrated by fiber artist Carrie Burckle and zines under the guidance of illustrator JT Steiny. We have found this partnership to be rewarding, through and through, as the mission of Craft in America is embodied in their creations.
Please join us for a reception for Craft in Schools: Fairfax Student Work on Saturday, April 18, from 3-5pm at the Craft in America Center.
