This summer we are happy to have Aiyi Zhang assisting us in the Studio. She just started last week, so she’s still fairly new to all that we do here, but getting the hang of it quickly. She’ll be helping with planning upcoming classes and Public Art Programs this summer and orienting guests who want to work with the art materials. Welcome Aiyi!
Hi ^_^ ! My name is Aiyi and I’m from China. I am a rising sophomore in Smith College, majoring in studio art. Most of the time I play with found materials; found digital media and paper to use in my collages. The Art Studio is really a good match for me because the way I work is the same way kids play with materials: to touch, to smell, to feel everything with curiosity! At first, I was a little bit shy in the Studio, but now I’m more confident with my work, because I can fully use my creativity, my imagination and bring my love for life to The Carle. I would like to bring my playful thoughts to the Studio and create interesting projects to inspire the kids. This week I’m brainstorming ideas for the Friday morning Materials Play program with Meghan. I’m also experimenting with paper sewing for a possible upcoming project. Maybe next time when you come to the studio, you will use BROCCOLI to paint with me!
