US Art Gallery Field Trip
Our Studio Art and Mural Design classes made a recent visit to Virginia Wesleyan University to view the mural "Selfie" in the Batten Student Center and John Rudel's "Big Old Works" at the Neil Britton Art Gallery.
The students especially enjoyed how the mural was designed and painted by a team of VWU students. They discussed the blending of history and modern times in the mural and what might have been challenging about creating it. Next, they traveled over to the art gallery to analyze the expressive colors and layering techniques used by John Rudel. The students loved viewing the art but more importantly, they savored the experience of visiting a college campus and learning amongst its students.
