Art Workshop

Here are a couple of images of Kathryn Kelley's work from the Women and Their Work's show that opened March 6th. As an art teacher, I was able to attend a free morning workshop with her; where she openly discussed her process and challenges in creating the work. I feel very lucky that the school district I work for offers these opportunities to meet working artists. Kathryn puts so much of herself into her pieces; I could hear it in her descriptions and see it for myself in her work. I, of course, cried a little... I'm such a sucker for witnessing the power, drive and passion that it takes for artists to create. God help me when I get to Europe and see all of the artwork. I'm gonna need a backpack full of tissues. hahaha
