Week 7, Day 31 – 35, 45 Days of Giving

WRITTEN BY: intern extraordinaire

Welcome back to Week 7 of our 45 Days of Giving! See Days 31 – 35 below!  In the fall of 2018, Nossi College of Art is celebrating our 45th anniversary, and we decided to do 45 acts of creative kindness for local classrooms, non-profits, church groups. Nashville and the surrounding communities have been supportive of Nossi College and the impact we wanted to make on this area, so in return, we wanted to feature 45 acts of thankfulness. If you haven’t already, check out our previous blog for Week 6 to get all the action! Day 31: Ivanetta H. Davis Early Learning Center Ivanetta H. Davis Early Learning Center is a child- and family-centered public preschool. What’s unique about this preschool is the children’s growth and development are supported through the studies of the Creative Curriculum. Each day, students focus on literacy, math, social studies and science while also receiving social and emotional learning through experiences in the garden, the library and art classes. Teaching students through STEAM is very important for Nossi College and we were thrilled to stock their classroom with markers, crayons, crafting supplies and plenty of glue to hold it all together!

Davis Early Learning Center Ivanetta encourages families to visit and play often and to be engaged in their student’s life – both in and out of the classroom.

Lisa Taylor (view her amazing work here) will be participating in Frank Bette Plein Air Paintout in Alameda, California this week.  A “paintout” is an event where artists congregate in an outdoor setting for the purpose of completing paintings from life. There’s a variety of paintouts, most fall under being either an Invitational or Juried event and are typically a week long.    There were 40 artists juried/selected to participate in this. Lisa Taylor, along with 39 other artists will be spending the week painting on location in Alameda, California. Each day they setup and paint in various locations across the island, with a goal of completing 2 to 3 paintings a day.

During the unveiling, each artist will have a booth to display all of their work.    In addition to the paintout, there’s also a “Quick Draw” competition amongst the artists this week.
