Coffee Talk with Frank Juarez, founder of the Midwest Artist Studios™ (MAS) Project and Erika Block, MAS writer and editor.
Frank Juarez, founder/art educator, and Erika Block, writer/editor, will share the journey they took with photographer, Pat Ryan, and assistant, Jonathan Fritsch last summer. They visited the studios of Josh Wilichowski (MN), Vincenzio Donatelle (MN), Jane Ryder (IA), Jamie Bates Slone (MO), Catie Miller (MO), Todd Mrozinski (WI), Paula Schulze (WI), Josie Osborne (WI), and Suzanne Torres (WI). The result of these visits were two-fold; to create a catalog introducing these 9 artists and creating a curriculum workbook, which contains 9 artist-inspired lesson for grades 6-12 in public, private, or homeschool setting. This curriculum workbook is also beneficial to student teachers, first year teachers, and art education students.
On December 23, we made a quick stop to Todd’s studio at the Nut Factory in Milwaukee to catch up with him and get a few thoughts about his participation in the MAS Project.
