Fall is in the air and the studio is busier than ever with some great projects in the shop, working with some amazing clients on installations and having fun with the upcoming show AvA!
RIVER TO SKY INSTALLATION
This was one of those projects where I drew out 5 designs I saw that could work in that space and my client Mr. Tyson choose this one! It took several attempts, research on hardware, and mock ups until I was happy with the finished look.
If you came by the studio and saw a mock up on the wall we worked a long time getting the colors right and having Mr. Tyson over to see the progress. What a fun project and yes, this design will be seen again! I love it!
BRINGING CHILDREN INTO THE DALLAS
ARTIST V ARCHITECT (AvA) PROJECT
Through AvA, our pieces will be auctioned to raise money for the non-profit Big Thought. This is a perfect time to initiate the ARO (Art Reaching Out) program while working with Big Thought's after school "Thriving Minds" group!
|Medrano Middle School 6,7 and 8th graders sign up for after school "Thriving Minds" program--they're excited to roll their sleeves up and participate in the AVA project! |
This project will bring ARO into action! Through the process of making this piece, these students will be exposed to role models who have chosen to follow their career and their passion, exposing these students to the trades and involving STEAM lessons through the process.
Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math
The kids will not only help create part of the project, but they will also attend sessions and field trips talking about creative careers in glass, welding, photography, architecture and design.
