FHM Hosts VSA Florida Exhibition

 What can be more stimulating and inspiring than to work alongside professional artists?  Students from Tamara Laine's class at Hamilton Disston High School in St. Petersburg, Florida are getting just that kind of chance this winter through the VSA-Florida Holocaust Museum Partnership and Artist in Residence Program.  The Fabric of Life works will be on display from January 18 - February 16th at the Florida Holocaust Museum at 55 5th Street South, St. Petersburg.  

 

Following a student field trip to the FHM to view the traveling exhibition, The Fabric of Survival, which featured fabric collages created by Holocaust Survivor Esther Nisenthal Krinitz, each student returned to the classroom for the artist in residency sequence of classes.  VSA Florida professional and teaching artist, Judith Salmon, taught students with disabilities collage techniques needed to bring their own artistic interpretation of what they viewed during their field trip to life.

 

VSA Florida's signature Artist in Residence Program gives students in exceptional education a chance to participate in 8 one-hour art sessions, encouraging them to develop creatively.  The Museum Partnership program overlays an additional component to the residency program.  Students participate in a field trip to a museum with the VSA Florida Teaching Artist, are inspired by a style or particular exhibition, and return to the classroom to develop paralleling work.

 

VSA Florida provides, supports and champions arts education and cultural experiences for and by people with disabilities.  For more info, please visit www.vsafl.org.
