The Larchmont Elementary PTA is proud to sponsor the Artist in Residence program. This program exists to further enrich our students’ experience at school. Each year Mrs. Outcalt invites an artist from the community to spend one week with our students, sharing their passion for art and creative endeavors and teaching them about their art and processes.
We are thrilled to announce our 2017 visiting artist… Asa Jackson
Asa will be joining Mrs. Outcalt and working with our students the week of March 20, 2017.
Paper Artist, Rich Gray, began teaching origami as a student at the University of Massachusetts, where he developed an interest in Japanese art and culture and minored in Asian Studies. He spent five years in Japan during his Navy career, and origami provided an ideal pastime for the long days in cramped quarters at sea. Rich is a member of OrigamiUSA, and shares his passion for the art by helping students progress from just following traditional folding patterns to creatively adapting them in ways that express their own artistic visions.
