Public art collaberations
It probably comes as no surprise that, having taught in the public school system for 3 decades, I developed a weakness for the kind of creative experiences that would invite any kid in, no matter how brilliant or tentative his artistic abilities. Student-teacher projects happened on occasion, and, over the years, numerous public art events took place where people worked their own unique marks, colour combinations, written words and ideas into my pieces. Below are some of my favourite ones, photo album style, which came together because people from all walks of life so generously participated.
