See you in the studio! with BiJian Fan
Our newest series continues on
Tuesday,  July 27, 2021
6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Focus on the Masters’ (FOTM) newest series, See you in the Studio! continues on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom.  Each month, you will catch up with one of FOTM’s Documented Artists, find out what they have been up to, get a tour of their studio and learn how their artwork is integrated into art education.  This visit features
BiJian Fan, a sculptor who in addition to traditional materials such as metal, uses non-traditional materials such a holographic paper and polymer. He channels his creative energy into contemporary forms of paper sculpture, integrating folding, cutting and other techniques in his artistic expression.

These studio visits will be different from FOTM’s Spotlight Series and other events you may have attended online. See you in the Studio! featured artists have all been documented by FOTM and are the inspiration for the lesson plans of FOTM’s in-school art program, Learning to See Outreach.  Says Education Director, Aimee French, “The artwork and life stories of these extraordinary artists in our community provide our youth with present day role models who have excelled in pursuit of their passions.”  

This event is FREE to all but donations gratefully accepted.
