Here are a few photos from May resident Colleen McCubbin Stepanic’s two-day class visits at Taconic Hills High School. She showed slides of her work on the first day then led students through an exercise inspired by her own work. Student were throwing ropes, tracing the outlines, and painting in the negative spaces. They covered color theory, systems in art-making, and depth in the canvas.
