Local Artists Visit Studio Art AP At OHHS

On September 25th, 2013 local artists visited the Studio Art AP 2D Design and Drawing classes to discuss approaches to artmaking as well and technical and conceptual development.  Both artists currently teach at the Art Institute of Cincinnati, Ohio and have had work show and published on both a national and international scale.

Students were both excited and grateful for the opportunity to be able to discuss artwork with professionals working in the field.

“I thought the visit from the artist was very informative about the technique and profession of adult artists in Cincinnati.  The one technique I found most interesting was tonigh the paper before applying charcoal”.  -Jackie Switzer

“When Mark and Paul came to talk to us I was inspired by their awesome portfolios they showed us that made me wat to push myself even more”.  -Josh Kells

“Mark and Paul’s visit to our art classwas very enlightening in both a purely artistic and career oriented manner.  Not only did we learn great techniques for toning paper, layering charcoal and pastels, and general craftsmanship in our art, but we also were able to see how these skills would be put into practice.  Seeing their artwork was inspiring for me to challenge and refine my own skills.  Hearing their feedback on our projects was also invlauable.  Hopefully they can come back soon!”-  Cameron Suter
