Mr. Menzer teaching students through a demonstration about drawing mass and scale.
As part of the Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center and Alexander County Schools efforts toward excellence in art education, we are pleased that Stony Point Elementary School will host Jeff Menzer of Asheville, NC, as Artist in Residence. Mr. Menzer will teach Feb 3-14, 2020 at the school. Students will focus on 2-D art principles and practices in various mediums.
Students first drew patterns on paper in class, then recreated those patterns in a larger scale in an outdoor chalk art project.
Andy Palmer, Principal at Stony Point School related that their Leadership Team was discussing the best way to spend Title I money and heard from the students that they would love to have more art. “ We decided as a school that bringing in an artist would be a great way to give the students a different experience. A few years back we went through the Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center to bring an artist to Stony Point and the experience was wonderful. The students were very excited to work with a real artist. Thanks to Ms. Houchins at the Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center for her help organizing this program.“
