As a design teacher at TSA, I have had little opportunity to work with steel. Tom Zitzelberger and Joel Washing changed that for me and several of my students. They came to my classroom, met with me and two other teachers and several of our students, offering to teach us how to work with steel in order to create sculptures. We have now been working together since January and it has been an incredible experience. Four of our students are currently working on sculptural pieces that will hopefully be installed in Gibsonburg, Ohio this summer for their “Sculpture in the Village” which is sponsored by the Toledo Area Sculptors Guild.

I just wanted to share this beautiful video of portraits of Syrian children (some of them created by TSA art students) being delivered to a refugee camp in Jordan. This is our 9th year participating in this amazing project in which disadvantaged children in various countries receive handmade portraits for them to keep.
