Take a stroll down CCV Montpelier’s first floor academic center gallery and be sure to check out artist David Southwick’s paintings on display. Southwick is based in Maine and is teaching for CCV for the first time this spring, offering an online Two-Dimensional Design course.
It takes many small parts to make a whole. That was the thought behind Small Works, the current art show on display at CCV Montpelier. The show, which runs from October 4 through December 16, 2013 features the work of CCV students, staff, faculty, and alumni.
It’s just past one o’clock on Tuesday afternoon at CCV Newport. Students are at work in the Learning Center, instructors are beginning the day’s lessons, and staff goes about handling the logistics of day-to-day life at the College. This would be a typical day at the center, save for what’s going on in the corner classroom that looks out over Lake Memphremagog.
Hallmarks of the CCV experience are small classes and practicing professional instructors who bring real-world applications to their teaching. This spring CCV offers 25 art courses at centers throughout the state and online. Students who enroll in the “introduction” classes explore a new area of study, and often also get to experience how working artists apply their craft in daily life.
