Introduction to Jewelry at CCV is typically taught on-ground, in person. But this spring the COVID-19 pandemic caused instructor Pamela O’Connor and her students to switch to online learning.
The CCV-Bennington Painting I class taught by Stella Ehrich created an online exhibition of their work from the spring 2020 semester.
Carol Gargon has been teaching art classes at CCV for 31 years. She’s taught graphic design, drawing, pastels, painting, jewelry, printmaking, and a crafting class. This spring, students in her Painting I class in Montpelier had a chance to show their work in CCV president Joyce Judy’s office gallery, where artwork from CCV faculty members is displayed in rotating exhibits.
On Friday, December 8th, the Rutland center held its biannual Cafe CCV, a showcase of different visual and performing arts classes held at the center. In Winooski, the CCV Guitar 1 class and the Community Chorus held a musical performance. And at the Montpelier center, three different art classes were highlighted in an end-of-semester art show.
CCV students around the state are bringing their creative minds to visual arts classrooms. In this review, we feature a sample of student work from 2017’s spring and summer classes.
Café CCV, a biannual showcase of student artwork, was held at CCV-Rutland on December 9th. Over 70 students participated, displaying paintings, drawings, stained glass, ceramics, photography, and masks, and performing stand-up comedy.
For CCV student and Vermont State Park Ranger Lisa Liotta, her most recent artworks flow directly from her day job. The time she spends observing the flora and fauna at Niquette Bay State Park in Colchester provides her with the subject matter and the inspiration for her stunning watercolors.
Each semester CCV’s student artists take visual arts courses and produce amazing pieces of work. We welcome you to our Fall 2015 Visual Arts Wrap Up, a selection of art work produced in the spring and summer semesters in art classes from around the state.
Walk through the halls of CCV Montpelier and you’ll notice words such as Maybe! and IF staring you in the face. The words, along with a number of additional pieces, are part of the center’s latest art show, which features the work of Montpelier-based artist Sayward Schoonmaker.
Trish Weill is pretty tethered to her students.
That’s because students in the design-related classes she teaches are using technologies such as Pinterest, Tumblr, or WordPress, to work and connect with her both in and out of the classroom. Her familiarity with using technology in the classroom was the subject of her breakout session at the Southern Vermont Educators annual symposium last month. And it was a topic the owner of DelishDesign and CCV instructor of six years was thrilled to talk about with K-12 educators.
