NEW BERLIN » Golden Artist Colors has partnered with DCMO, Madison-Oneida and Herkimer County BOCES to host its second Master Teacher Art Exhibition.
The opening reception, to be held Saturday, Feb. 17 from 4-6 p.m. in The Loft Gallery at Golden Artist Colors, will feature artwork by 17 local art teachers who participated in the recent Master Teacher Program. The event, held at 188 Bell Road, is free and open to the public.
In the fall of 2017, Golden Artist Colors partnered with DCMO, Madison-Oneida and Herkimer County BOCES to offer two professional painting instruction courses for art teachers in the local community. The eightweek professional development program began in August and concluded late October. It was focused on helping participants explore a range of painting media and techniques to reinforce or establish their own voice.
The Master Teacher Program was facilitated by local artist Chelsea Gibson, who received a bachelor of fine arts from the Rhode Island School of Design in Painting, and a master of fine arts in painting from Boston University. To learn more about her and her work, visit www.chelseagibson.net.
Mark Golden, CEO and founder of Golden Artist Colors said, “Our Master Teacher Program has been a great success, so we’re thrilled to celebrate with an art opening for these incredible local art teachers. None of this would have been possible without the guidance and support of our local BOCES organizations, so we’re incredibly grateful for all they’ve done for this program as well!”
