What is a Visiting Artist?
A Visiting Artist is a professional artist that will visit our school to explain her/his job, artworks, style and techniques, tools and media, and inspirations. Much like the visiting authors that have shared their experiences with our students over the years, the artists will do the same but in the smaller setting of the artroom. Often the students will create a project in the style of or inspired by our talented visitor. In the past, students have made movable paper-cut birds wearing silly hats, clay bunnies, and illustrations of a girl and her dog in colored pencil. It is Mrs. Chapman-Speelman's goal to have at least one artist visit each year, with luck, maybe two!
