Carole Karemera – healing social trauma through the arts

The main part of our conversation is dedicated to Carole’s description of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and especially, the role that women played in the genocide. Carole then recounts for us the courageous journey of women in the arts in Rwanda, who picked up the task of listening carefully to the needs of their society and the daunting process of reworking their historical “heritage”, the social trauma of genocide together with perpetrators and victims and the new generations.

Universal Preschool: The Science (and Magic) in Preschool for All

There is a lot of science behind the benefits of universal preschool education. The idea was first introduced in France in the 1800s; many developed countries have a strong history of educating all children early on. We don’t, and so a debate began, and science set about to study whether or not there’s any benefit […]

STEM Promotes Science Instruction at the Expense of Humanities

We need more engineers and scientists. That has become the mantra of promoters of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in education. There is nothing wrong with such a rallying cry, except that investment in STEM education usually comes at the expense of HAS (humanities, arts, and social sciences). There is no arguing that inadequate […]

Common Core Standards: Let Arts Educators Lead the Way

Though I’m typically standards-adverse (yet dutiful), I’m looking forward to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS), specifically to their potential to de-isolate subject areas, including art. I feel the CCSS reflect the work progressive educators have been doing for years and frame that work elegantly. I believe art educators can be important change agents […]

Printmaking with Light taught by Walt Padgett For all skill levels, Ages 18+

Saturday, Oct. 6: 1:00-5:00pm and Sunday, Oct. 7- 10:00am – 4:00pm

Cost: $155 members/ $175 non-members, includes materials fee

Play with light as you expose, develop, and print Solarplate etching plates. These plates are exposed to light, developed in water and then printed in the traditional intaglio process, using an etching press. This amazing technology can produce images resembling photogravure, lithography and traditional etchings, and best-of-all, it is non-toxic and easy! Bring a work of art, photograph and/or a collage you would like to use as inspiration.

Walt Padgett is a professional artist working in printmaking, watercolor painting, and sculpture and has taught for over 40 years at college and university levels. Retired from full-time teaching he now offers private workshops and select classes.
