    This week’s Artist is the incredibly talented & prolific Jason Flack, big brother to one of our very own BCE Bars, 5th grader Kelis (who happens to be an amazing Artist herself)!

    I love, love, love his use of vibrant, bold colors, clean lines, & the sense of humor & awareness Jason incoporates into his work. This is the Artist statement he sent me:

    ”I have always been an Artist, but I started painting after the passing of my twin sister. Since then, I’ve been featured in many festivals, galleries and markets. All my work comes from how I see life or how I want life to be. My goal is to create so much Art, it spills-over into the culture here in our area.”

    Jason Jason Jason Jason Jason Jason Thank you, Jason, for sharing your amazing work with us!

    This week’s Artist, I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with for several years and to call a friend- BCE’s own Mr. Mike Mason! I’ve known for a while, in addition to teaching, he was an accomplished drummer and pilot- but I had no idea until recently he was a metal artist. His father was a pilot, as well, and left Mr. Mason a workshop full of interesting gadgets, gears, and various metal works which he began combining to create amazing pieces of Art. The surface coatings, or Patinas, on his work are developed using a wide variety of chemical reactions.

    So, this week I wanted to share one of my favorite artists, Patrick Dougherty. He is an Environmental Installation Artist who uses his carpentry, architectural and weaving skills to create monumental scale works of Art from natural materials. Dougherty has created Artwork all over the world - and even built a temporary piece on campus at ETSU!

    His work inspired me to start a little ropes course challenge/future lavender garden this week. Still a work in progress!

  • So, one of my most favorite places in the world (besides the Art room) is my garden. And my most favorite place to order seeds from is Hudson Valley Seeds. Of course, I love that they have organic, heirloom seeds- but, what I love even more is the fact that they support Artists! Each seed packet has an original piece of Art on the cover- and they are currently calling for Artists for 2021! You all should go for it!

  • Try drawing a dragon’s eye

    Try drawing this dragon’s eye using pencil with crayons, colored pencils or oil pastels. While it looks complicated, it is actually drawn using very simple, basic shapes.
