The Waterford Seven have continued to create wonderful works of art over this summer. I am truly proud of the ideas and decisions that they make in the arrangement of their visual compositions. From today’s prints to the drawings of landscape in oil pastels and marker, to the acrylic paintings, they make GREAT choices and are following some very challenging processes to their Art making. Way to go ALL! GALLERY is HERE.
