NEO Art Dept. attends Tulsa Glassblowing School

Miami, Oklahoma – Tuesday, April 1, 2014 – The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO), Art Department recently sponsored a trip to the Tulsa Glassblowing School in the Brady Arts District in downtown Tulsa. Art instructor Jessica Stout and 11 students had a hands-on experience shaping molten glass under the direction of the school’s teaching artists.

Tulsa Glassblowing School is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to promoting and preserving the art of glassblowing and the awareness of glass art as a vibrant and unique visual arts medium. Its mission is “to provide a dynamic learning environment for those interested in creating, teaching, and promoting” the art. It offers youth and adult classes and studio time to glass artists.

Kandace Rogers, who is double-majoring in art and natural sciences at NEO, said she had been experiencing a bit of an artist’s block, but that the glass workshop helped her get her ideas back and made her feel like she could do anything. She described the class as the coolest thing she had ever done and plans to go back for another workshop this summer.

At the workshop, NEO students created colorful glass flowers and paperweights, which are currently on display in Kah-Ne Hall on the NEO campus. The experience was funded by the Art Department and by an account created for the department by Osborn Drug in appreciation for the repainting of the Visual Reflections mural in downtown Miami.

“The Art Department has been sponsoring a fieldtrip each semester and hopes to fit in a museum visit before this term is over,” said Art instructor Jessica Stout. “Other plans include a student art exhibit in the Bruce G. Carter Student Union April 7-18, and a display of the work of graduating art majors in the Charles Banks Wilson Art and Cultural Education Center in Kah-Ne Hall in April.”

A new art club has recently been given status as a sanctioned student organization on campus. The art department found its home on the recently renovated second floor of Kah-Ne Hall that was officially dedicated for Founders’ Day on March 29, 2014.
