Maverick is fortunate to have pottery supplies and equipment donated by retired artist Joan Krochek. Professional ceramic artists conduct lessons and guide students through both hand building and wheel construction. Student “works of art” are auctioned at our annual Coffeehouse and Art Auction in late April.
Students also have the opportunity to participate in digital photography and photographic editing instruction. Both still life and landscape photography are investigated. Student photos are a popular item at our annual Coffeehouse.
Other visual art work shops involving fabric art, painting and drawing, wire sculpture and wood working may be held throughout the school year. In addition, trips to our local art gallery provide students with the opportunity to view professional art exhibits and meet the artists. Workshops offered depend upon the availability of artists to facilitate instruction.
