Lisa Simon will be starting her new job teaching at Highland Pres soon, but before that, she was in the A R T x F M studio to talk about her recent project at Bellewood for LVA, among other things. Tune in to WXOX 97.1 FM Thursdays at 10am to hear live interviews with local artists on PUBLIC with Keith Waits.
We rise by lifting others. Sunday was a great day as we celebrated the first Studio 2000 mural with Louisville Metro Parks. Parishioners, family, friends and Metro Council member Barbara Sexton Smith came together to see what our high school student artists and instructor Casey McKinney made happen this summer, bringing brightness back to a beautiful community.
LVA instructor Liz has been working with students at Home of the Innocents on several projects, including various crafts, painting, dreamcatchers and an interpretation of HOTI's iconic mural. We recently joined the students, faculty and employees to celebrate the end of a very successful summer!
We were honored to hold our Studio 2000 exhibition and sale with Louisville Metro Parks and Recreation last night at Actors Theatre of Louisville's beautiful space.
We are so proud of our young artists! Thank you to everyone who attended, supported, bought pieces and otherwise made it such a great night!
Our Studio 2000 students are nearing the finish line for their summer program we've been working on with Metro Parks. Fiber, clay and mixed media projects are all coming together so wonderfully!
Please come see the exhibition at Actors Theatre of Louisville on Thursday, August 4 from 5-7pm, free for all ages!
We have been working with Kosair Kids® through Kosair Charities and Fund for the Arts to bring an art therapy program with Bellewood Home for Children, who "have worked to nurture Kentucky's most vulnerable children."
We celebrated this art program's conclusion as proud students shared what they made this summer with instructor and ceramic artist Lisa Simon - they are some of the sweetest kids we've gotten to work with yet!
