Art and Education
For many years, I’ve been a part of the Art in Education Program through the Schuylkill County Committee of Arts. Each year, artists are asked to visit to visit a school in the county and give a presentation of their artwork. This year, I was glad to accept the invitation to visit my alma mater, North Schuylkill High School.
I presented my techniques for creating this unique brand of art, teaching the eager students about the newest technology available and how to use it to create digital caricatures. The students were very eager to learn about what I do and several were more than willing to be the subject of my art and have a souvenir caricature print to take home and show their family and friends. It was also a thrill for me, visiting my old “stomping grounds” and seeing many of my younger relatives who are now students there.
