My seventh grade students were given a printing demonstration by Corcoran student, Kristine in one of the 6 art sessions we are doing as part of Corcoran's ArtReach program. Students printed their collographs.
Seventh grade students at Brookland explore issues of identity during art lessons with Corcoran Museum of Arts' ArtReach program. Kristen, a Corcoran education student co-teaches with me for 6 art sessions at the school. In this project students make collographs using cloth, ribbon, bubble wrap and other found objects to make a statement about their identity. The finished prints will be exhibited in May at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C..
I see myself as a visual storyteller. My narrative mixed media art explores the interaction of words, symbols, and imagery in my art making. My craving for the tactile keeps me bound in traditional printmaking and painting— however, my interest in new technologies has pushed me to explore digital processes and the marriage of the two.
