The Arts Councils of Southern Indiana is honored to host and exhibit featuring the work of Art educators. The Art of Education is a collaborative exhibit of multi-media work by Artists that are also art educators.
These teachers are taking their talents out of the classroom and into the gallery to highlight the role art plays in their lives as well as public education. Summer is the window of opportunity to fill our creative souls and make visual the ideas and emotions that we encourage our students to give, every day, in our art rooms
This exhibit brings together four arts educators from regional high schools, who are teaching artists. This exhibit shows the diversity and strength of artists who also teach others. These artists not only challenge their students, but also themselves, to communicate their ideas and their inspiration in their artwork. Retaining their identity as artist as well as educator supports the importance of the arts in our communities and the future of our students.
Angie Wolf teaches art at Jeffersonville High School and is primarily a potter. Her work explores form and surface design in 3 dimensional works of clay art. She particularly enjoys making cylindrical and globe forms with a hint of alteration.
Donna Burden teaches art at our Lady of Providence high School. She applies techniques across mediums, and challenges herself to use skills in non-traditional ways. For this exhibit, her recent work features repurpose books, clay, and cooper.
Monica Schotter teaches art at New Albany High School. She enjoys creating mixed media pieces and the challenges that arise with trying to merge different materials in a natural way. Her works range from decorative tiles to 3 dimensional sculptural works.
Stephanie LeBrun teaches at Our lady of Providence High School. Her works primarily feature landscape paintings and drawings that are inspired by patterns in nature.
The Art of Education can be experienced at the Arts Council of Southern Indiana from May 12 – June 3, 2017. Opening reception is Friday, May 12th 5:30- 7:30pm.
The Artist Reception is free and open to the public. Please join us for this fabulous exhibit and meet the artists that inspire the next generation of artists and arts supporters in our community. For more information, please call (812)-949-4238, [email protected]
