Fairfax students visit Craft in America Center

This season's partnership with Fairfax High School Visual Arts Magnet kicked off with a field trip to Craft in America Center. We invited four artists in our Body Conscious exhibition to participate: Carrie Ann Burckle, Ben Cuevas, Annette Heully and Zac Monday. After briefly speaking about their artwork, the artists spent time answering the many engaging, thought-provoking questions from the students. It was a fruitful visit that covered topics such as how to make a living as an artist to the importance of photographing your work well.
