Posts Tagged ‘Warren County 175th Anniversary’

In September we received a grant from Target to teach an art residency at Warren County Middle School. 

I spent the day with 13 wonderful young people who attacked the project with enthusiasm.

The project was part of the 175th Anniversary of Warren County project so we painted pieces that relate to our history both past and present.

Each student painted two 12″x12″ panels that related to government, education, tourism, transportation, or agriculture.

We put these together into four larger panels that will be unveiled this evening at WCMS at 6 pm.  If you are downtown this evening and would like to see them in person stop by and help us celebrate these wonderful young artists and their accomplishment!

And many thanks to Target for sponsoring this project; to Linda Kusior and Shelly Brugal, two wonderful artists who assisted us with the class; and the Blue Ridge Arts Council  for continuing to bring exciting art projects to young people in our community.
