2017. Wow. Before we get too busy, let's just to take a moment to reflect on all that 2016 held.
Starting with the Summer. TOSS and the Burke Arts Council hosted a summer camp. We hosted different guest teachers and had different themes each week. One of the weeks was a studio tour. During this week we visited some of the artists that work downtown Morganton. We were amazed with all art that was made during the camp.
TOSS started back up in September. We focused on animation, drawing, painting, bookmaking, sculpture, and printmaking. Here are some highlights of the work students have made over these last months!
Kirksey taught the first TOSSafter-hours class at Food Matters Market, and it was a great success, the second class was held in December. There will be another class to be announced soon.
Hannah and Kirksey 's personal work has developed as the fall progressed. Hannah has been working on various freelance animation projects, that filled her free time with pages upon pages of drawing and painting. The process is incredible, ask her about it!! We will post her current project here soon!
Kirksey's fascination with weaving still has her under it's spell. She is amazed with the endless possibilities of the loom. Aside from "throwing the shuttle" She was also re-introduced to her love of watercolor.
Kathryn sends her greeting from the shores of the Chesapeake. She is doing well. She has been challenged and inspired by Trinity Fellows Academy.
