Our Next Session

The next session of Art Loves Farms has officially been planned for December 19-23, 2009.

We’ve gotten a local artist, John DeFaro, to come out to do a demonstration for the students. So far, we have a fuzzy picture about what exactly we’re going to do, but whatever it is, it’s going to be great and different and will hopefully open the minds of our participants, which is always good for creating interesting art! He says it’s a project we’re calling “Implosion”. Check out his spectacular work (love his sculptures) here: http://jdefaro.com/

We have a total of seven entries for this session. They’re all seniors, which is exciting, and they all seem to be super excited about it. Here’s an overview of what they’re thinking of doing.

Chris Bender: wants to work large from objects found on the farm; also wants to gather inspiration for his fashion work

Elise Fernandez: (repeat from last session); wants to experiment with photography and her Minolta 35mm; she also plans on WWOOFing (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) in the future

Adrian Pinagel: (repeat from last session); wants to continue work with oil paints and detailed sketches of plants he encounters

Talisa Almonte: wants to work on paintings of installations that she will construct out of objects on the farm

Keith Clougherty: wants to work on stream-of-consciousness-like writing; he also wants to work on the farm

Jacob Dakar: (repeat from last session); wants to experiment with “egg carving” using eggs shells from eggs we eat for breakfast and wood carving using scraps from the farm

Andrea Fabry: wants to work with elements from the farm creating sort of sculptural works, focusing on color and texture

As you can see, I’ve gotten quite an array of applicants. I’m getting excited, Marian’s excited, the students are excited, and it’s all good!
