Since I didn't go to art school, I only had a rudimentary understanding of the color wheel and it's importance regarding the science of color. For this last school residency of the 2013-14 school year, I wanted to create a large color wheel with Middle School students, emphasizing and isolating colors, while concentrating on shape and andamento of the pieces within each color wedge.

It was a great week in Frankfort, Kentucky at Good Shepherd Catholic School! This mosaic was made with Pre K-8th graders, all working together on different sections and different skills, collaborating in this fantastic rendering of their school logo design ( original logo by the principal's brother/sister in law). It was a pleasure to see some old friends (Ida and Anne Taylor + family) and make lots of new ones (Jody, Sharon, Steve, and about 165 students)! Thank you all for your hospitality, trust in my work, and willingness to rearrange schedules and classrooms to make it happen!
