Artists in Residence

Every Fall local artists are invited to participate in the Artists in Residence program run by the parents of the Furnace Brook Middle School here in Marshfield. Artists set up in the school lobby and demonstrate their skills and as the kids pass between classes they can stop for a visit.
Last year I tried out a color mixing exercise that let the kids be 'hands on' and they enjoyed it so much that I repeated it today.  
I was joined by Mary McSweeney (in the background) who was doing her beautiful charcoal drawings of dogs. 
A big thanks to the parents and teachers and the kids at FBMS for their enthusiastic warm welcome. Keep making art!

I hope you've encouraged budding artists by your presence at the school, Mary. What a fabulous thing to do in the schools. Sounds like you had a great time yourself!
