Ripple Effect: From K to 12 and Beyond
March: Art from our partner schools has started arriving. This moment in time invites the opportunity to reflect on the processes through which this work comes into being. The artists teaching in our programs make all the envisioning and scheduling come to fruition. They do so with great skill, patience, planning, and the ability to be flexible in changing circumstances. Here are just a few examples:
Augusto Bordelois demonstrates to fourth and fifth graders how to combine loose and controlled brushstrokes to express mountains or clouds, and how a “mistake” can turn into a success just by being willing to explore the forms.
Meri Ruble introduces kindergartners to various printmaking and collaging techniques, new tools, the concept of collaboration, and the Lake Erie environment. The resulting 2 × 3 ft. images are impressive.
Melissa Daubert exposes students to various cultures by utilizing materials and construction techniques from around the world. She methodically explains and demonstrates the steps, works with each high school student throughout the term, and welcomes others who wander in—with one rule: that they work.
Think about it: The important work that these artists do in the schools has a ripple effect into Cleveland’s cultural future.
