Fiber Arts Show & Reception
Wildwood Middle school students were fortunate to have a visiting Jefferson County artist teach their art class in February, as part of the Teaching Arts Creatively (TAC) program offered in Jefferson County.
TAC is funded in part by the Jefferson Arts Council, West Virginia Division of Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
Visiting artist Bridget Brown of Bridget’s Farm Cart in Summit Point instructed art teacher Laura Miller’s 6th, 7th and 8th grade classes on the art of weaving with fiber and other found objects. The focus of the class was to inspire artistic expression through their weavings with a variety of yarns, wool locks , sticks, buttons and other objects. Through the grant, each student was supplied with a cardboard loom and the necessary supplies to spark their imaginations.
A juried art show and reception will be held at Bridget Brown’s Wool Shop in Summit Point, Head Spring Farm on Saturday, March 24, from 4 to 6 p.m. The event is open to students and their families, teachers and the general public to view works of art created by the students.
Bridget’s Farm Cart is located at 1561 Leetown Road, Summit Point WV 25446
