I'm excited for the 2009-2010 school year! Last school year was an exceptional year with the many talented students we had in the program! The Metals Program had many students have pieces into art shows throughout the year. A large handful of those students won big awards regionally and state wide! I am looking forward to see who will be the shining artists coming out of the metals room this year!
This school year I am focusing on getting our studio more organized. It seemed like every time I turned around last year the room was a mess and supplies were being wasted. I have a few supplies that are required of you to get for the class this year. Those supplies are: safety glasses, rubber cement, an ultra thin sharpie, a pencil box, a lock (if you are sharing with someone only one of you needs to get a lock), a bottle of white out (not the pen), and a spiral bound sketchbook (around a 9" x 12"). Having your own supplies will be much more convenient for you and the organization of the studio.
If, throughout the year, you would like to purchase any materials on your own (i.e. fine silver) you can get that through http://www.riogrande.com/
Thanks, and I'm looking forward to see what you all create!
