Young Faces. Old Places.
When the Schuylkill County Committee of Arts asked me to be a guest presenter for their Arts In Education program this year, of course I was pleased and humbled. When I found out I’d be visiting my old high school, I was too excited to do it. Visiting my alma mater after many years was like visiting an old friend, familiar and thrilling at the same time.
I presented my artwork and how I use today’s technology and computers to create digital caricatures. Many of the students were enthralled watching me do my work, especially when they were able to be the subjects of a caricature and have a print to take home and share. I have to say, the most exciting part for me was seeing so many family members now studying in the same place that I did “just a few” years ago.
