I am involved with the Taft Art Museum here in Cincinnati. Through it teachers, artists and Taft docents work together to expose high school students to working artists so they can learn what it is like to be a professional artist and be inspired to create their own work. Throughout the first half of the school year the students will either have an artist visit them at school to talk about their work and/or will go to the Taft Museum and artists studios to see first hand what it is all about. It got kicked off today. I am looking forward to a good year with them.
Included here are a few of the paintings that I showed at the kickoff.. Top to bottom - "Arctic Heat" 40 X 40, "Off to the Universe that Called Them" - a tribute to the crew of the Columbia Space Shuttle - 48 X 72, "Hand of God" 49" diameter
