I didn't forget about the blog but I have been so swamped that I just haven't had time. SO today I am making some. I am so excited that 3 of my students had work shown in the Ohio High School show sponsored by OAEA last month. The take down and awards reception was a nice surprise because while one student was awarded 3rd place and had his work chosen to be used on the Show Catalogue CD, YAY !!!another of my three, had their work chosen to be showcased on the awards certificates!!!Ahh So Proud!!!!
I am in the process of rehearsing for "Dracula: The Comedy" right now. Soon to be performed at the Mansfield Playhouse on October 22, 23, 29, 30, and 31! I play Gypsy Rosa Lee....I like the fact that it is so fun and humorous. Great cast, great director, great all around! It should be a very amusing show!! We are off book tomorrow so I can't be on here too long.:)
My students are working on a variety of projects right now. Intro students have been working on value studies and they are coming along nicely. we will focus a little more on drawing skills in a few weeks when we start working with charcoal. VERY excited to do that! Sculpture has been working on abstract sculptures. Very open with a few requirements. I think that they have done a fantastic job and now they are in the finishing stages. They have been inspired and are creating a wall of color samples inspired by the artist Michael Demeng. I can't wait to see them all finished and hung up. Printmaking has taken off like wildfire with monotypes and are just doing some gorgeous pieces!! we start collographs in less than a week.

Spring Break has started with snow! What a great way to start off the weekend! I have several projects about to be underway. I found this great old high chair at a local antique store. A little pricier than what I would have wanted to normally spend for an assemblage piece-cause I am cheap-but it really spoke to me. It is going to become a a political response work, but you can derive your own meaning when it is posted. Also have a series of prints that the sketches have been started but the plates are still nonexistant. I am debating betweeen 2 different plate series and don't know which one to start. I will be working on those eventually hopefully tonight!
