The Senior Art Students recently visited some incredible working art studios in the area. First, they spent the morning at the always eventful Neusole Glassworks where the students watched demonstrations in the hot shop, a demonstration in flame working, and had a chance to check out the upstairs gallery. After the demos, the students also had the opportunity to make their own piece of blown glass artwork.
After spending a couple of hours at Neusole, they headed to an amazing studio full of creativity in Covington called The BLDG. NDA students heard talks on ALL that The BLDG has to offer. As a group, they work on bringing Art talent into the area to exhibit work. Most recently, they have brought in world renowned-street artists, The London Police, to create graffiti style murals around Cincinnati and Covington. The BLDG also offers a gallery space that houses local artists and a working studio on the second floor for their team of resident artists. If that wasn’t enough, they explained how they are also a design team that creates branding and logos for businesses and companies. This local grown team of hardworking artists opened their space to us, shared their talents and their experiences of what it is like being a professional artist.
TREMENDOUS ‘Thanks’ to Neusole Glassworks and their artists for taking NDA art students in for the day, and another TREMENDOUS ‘Thanks’ to the crew at The BLDG for taking us in for the day. Both teams are incredibly kind, courteous, and creative. If you would like more information on either place, please check them out at:
