During his Sumi-e class, ASCC faculty member HM Saffer uses a sprig of live bamboo to inspire students’ mastery of traditional brushstrokes.
As part of ASCC’s spring 2015 “Art in the Library” program, students created puppets based on Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky” at the Claverack Library. Additional free programs for grades 1-12 were taught by ASCC faculty at the Chatham Public Library, North Chatham Public Library and the Valatie Free Library.
