An Expert in the Classroom

Shannon Rossman Allen
Master Watercolorist Laurin McCracken returned to FWCD for the second year in a row to speak with Lauren Cunningham’s Painting and Drawing Students, thanks to a Supporting CAST (Creative Arts Students and Teachers) grant. McCracken shared his passion for watercolor technique with students on Tuesday, January 17, and Wednesday, January 18. Opportunities to work side-by-side with artists of acclaim is the cornerstone of an FWCD arts education. These experiences are invaluable to students. Through these workshops, students learn what it means to be an artist, and they learn to look at all works of art, including their own, more critically.
