3rd Street Visits Fairfax

Last week Otis professor and artist JT Steiny visited two Fairfax classes-- Digital Imaging and AP Photography-- to talk to students about the art of drawing, comics and book-making. He discussed his career path and process and then guided students through creating and constructing mini-zines of their own.

Our program with Fairfax is a relatively new one-- this was the first classroom visit by an artist, after students came to see Hidde van Dyum's work when it was exhibited at the Center several months ago. We're thrilled to be partnering with schools in the community to bring dynamic speakers and new experiences into the classroom, broadening student horizons and introducing them to art as craft, lifestyle and profession.
