Tag Archives: “Talented Art Program”

(Very) Early Days

I just posted some work from my childhood and teen years on my Facebook Fan Page.  I thought it would be fun to share on here as well.  I have been digging up older work for future projects- videos, mainly- and came across some fun pieces.  Of course I then remembered some pieces that I haven’t seen and don’t actually know what became of them.  As a kid, I gave away drawings, plus I think teachers ended up with some.  So I have some more digging to do apparently.  Here are a few of my finds (click on the photo to see the entire image):

In addition to Mother’s Day, this weekend is also the Second Saturday Artwalk in Downtown Lafayette, LA for the month of May. This Artwalk will feature work from students of the Lafayette Parish School System and the Talented Art Program in several galleries and restaurants around the downtown area. As a former Talented Art Program student from the New Orleans area, I can attest to the importance of such a program and it’s impact.
