Welcome to my new website "Studio of JudyIrene" where my journey into the world of practicing studio artist blooms. There is one week left to go at my old job as the Art Teacher at the New Mexico School for the Deaf. As I gather up lesson plans and handouts from prior semesters and having daily decisons to be made on the spot, I reflect back on my years of teaching Art to students who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing here in New Mexico and Oregon. Many collegues in the past have asked me if I teach adults and even though it has taken years to happen, this fall will be working to develop a series of workshops or individual workshops for adults in ceramics and painting. Eventally I'll love to add Kiln-Glass to the list of Art Mediums to offer to interested participants.
Its Friday just after lunch so I'll better return to the daily grind of packing up the artroom of my soon to be former Art Studio classroom. Today is also the day my work is being sold to the community of New Mexico School for the Deaf. Since some people may like to stay in touch and get email notification of new work on offer, work on inserting a link to JudyIrene's Studio mailing list is underway.
