The Fine Arts Cultural Enrichment Teaching Studios (FACETS) is conducting a Mixed Media Collage Workshop in conjunction with its current exhibition, The Grid Comes Full Circle II: An Exhibition of Drawings, Prints and Mixed Media Works by Students of Terry K. Hunter. 

The works of art created by students of Dr. Terry K. Hunter include drawings, prints, and mixed media works produced by Dr. Hunter’s students between 1977—2020. The exhibition demonstrates the dynamics of the teaching/learning continuum relative to Dr. Hunter’s axiom of “artist as teacher, teacher as artist.” 

This hands-on workshop will be held February 25, 2021 from 10 am to 3 pm at Raw Space Gallery, 1795 Old Dixie Highway, Vero Beach, FL. The workshop is designed to challenge by introducing different mixed media collage materials and techniques. Participants will explore how to create compositions by using different papers and textures and by experimenting with paints, tools and found objects. Instruction will include artworks as examples for possible approaches to designing mixed media collages. For beginner and intermediate skill levels. 

Dr. Terry K. Hunter, Artist, Educator and FACETS Executive Director and Angela Corbett, Artis, Exhibition curator and Academic Program Manager, will facilitate the workshop. Corbett who has several artworks in this exhibition, is a student of Hunter’s who was a novice to the arts before embracing her own creativity.  She created her first artwork while attending the FACETS professional development institute. FACETS is a program of Clemson University, Sandhill Research and Education Center.

For nearly fifty years, Terry K. Hunter has taught drawing, printmaking and design in public schools, higher education, and community outreach initiatives. The Grid Comes Full Circle II examines Dr. Hunter’s commitment to teaching and learning in the arts. The works in the exhibition are presented through a lens of structured creative problem-solving, combined with challenging instructional methodologies which focus on developing individual, personal, and creative expression.
