★ Inspiring Young Minds

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting the Art Department of Technology High School in Newark, New Jersey and speaking with one of the Art teachers, Ms. Davis. From the moment I started speaking with Ms. Davis, I was impressed by her love for her profession. Since I generally deal with designers or printers on a commercial level, it was refreshing to see someone that loved the traditional side of art. Above, is a stock print of an American Flag that her class laminated, dissected into little pieces, and then reassembled using tiny metal rings. Besides teaching her students that art consists of creativity, hard work, and precision, she has also imparted that even familiar things can become beautiful in the right hands. Notice the beautiful mosaic effect the piece now has and the motion of the flag blowing in the wind that is captured! Great job Ms. Davis and Technology High Students!
