This month we have been working on films, self portraits, collage, sculpture, and drawing from life. Click and then hover mouse over images for more details!
The Skate-park Advisory Committee- is having a fundraiser in April to promote the fruition of their skate park initiative. Kathryn has been asked to contribute to the silent auction which will be held at Fonta Flora by painting on one of ten boards which will be offered for sale to raise support for the park. She has recruited TOSSafter student Jay to help with this project (an avid skater). Together they are coming up with a design to show their support. Wish us luck!
Monday Malarping- this film is a MUST see! We are so proud of our little artists/actors for coming up with their very own story line, costumes, and beat-bop jams.
TOSSafter interview- we are going to be sharing more videos of our TOSSafter students, both at work and through interviews. This is one of our favorites from the month.
Kirksey and Kathryn have been hard at work this month creating an online store for our merchandise, freelancing, meeting with young entrepreneurs, and exhibiting student work. Click on an image for more details about any of the above!
