Artist in Residence

I spent this past week as the Artist-in-Residence at Ravenscroft School, an impressive K-12 private school situated on a beautiful 125-acre campus, located in Northeast Raleigh.  I worked with Upper School Art Instructor and artist, Joyce Fillip, teaching her two high school photography classes the historic gum bichromate printing process.  

We had a lot of fun, and the students were so willing to learn, so interested in everything-- and so much fun-- full of energy-- and very welcoming to me.  So thanks to them, they made it all seem way too easy.
