Our students are currently working on a two-week collaborative project with Artist in Residence Tom Dykas.

Karen Ann, Adam, Jamahl, Amanda, Sabrina, and Dee’Cheaa are working off-site at Artica 2009.

They have begun a raw clay instalation and will continue their work this weekend.

It is an exciting opportunity for them to work outside of the Craft Alliance studio environment.

Stay tuned as they make the world a big, enriching place to be. Artica is an outdoor multi-disciplinary and participatory art festival developed to provide the people of the St. Louis metropolitan area with the opportunity to come together as a community through creative self-expression.

Here is the information for those that are interested in attending.

Date: December 19, 2009-Saturday
Time: 12 noon to 12 midnight (our students will be in action 1-4P)
Location: The North Riverfront, Lewis and O'Fallon streets.
Directions: Take Washington Ave, East to Lenore K. Sullivan Blvd. Take Lenore K. Sullivan Blvd. north. Sullivan Blvd. will eventually turn into Lewis St. Continue until you see Artica.

Hello Talent!

Our textiles students have been working with artist Cathy McBride the past six weeks.

They have constructed crazy woven works through explorations in technique and materials.

The studio always has a unique sense of reality.

I've always said that there are at least eight different ways to use the same tool while making.

Um, I never saw this one coming...
