Last night, though, I don't recall anyone who appeared to be miserable.
Afterall, being surrounded by the talents of our community is something worth celebrating. The Student Show at OTAC featured artwork from Mia Kaplan's Drawing Workshop, Patricia Hart & Jane Hill's Clay classes, and Dennis Formento's Poetry Workshop. Students ranged in age, but all came together harmoniously for the exhibition.
Dennis Formento's performance was especially moving. Many of his poems use local references such as Carr Drive, St. Joe Bricks, life preservers, crawfish, etc. A collection of his writings should not be overlooked, and will hopefully find their way onto this blog in the near future!
If you haven't already, add the OTAC blog to your favorites so you can stay informed. We have more classes coming up. Contact us if you would like to be notified when something comes up that you're interested in.
Here is a link to more photos from the Student Show:
See you next month!
