Artist-in-Residence: Will "Kasso" Condry of S.A.G.E Collective

Starting next week and lasting for a few days, Will "Kasso" Condry, founder of S.A.G.E Collective, a group of phenomenal mural artists responsible for dozens of incredible exterior murals in Trenton, Philadelphia and New York will be working with a small group of students to develop ideas for a mural in the art room. Students and staff at Bear Tavern will have the opportunity to watch Mr. Condry paint the final mural live and insert the student created designs.
S.A.G.E Collective recently completed commission work in Hopewell, NJ on the Highland Farm during the Hopewell Tour Des Arts. See below for a video of the two days worth of painting!

We are looking to commission Mr. Condry and S.A.G.E Collective to do an exterior mural this spring and to bring the Bear Tavern students, staff and families together to assist with the painting-a true community project. Stay tuned...

I mentioned that all students would be able to view Mr. Condry painting live next week. While Mr. Condry is painting, we will be doing collaborative circle paintings.
I first learned of the Circle Painting organization a few years ago and love, love, love their work. The spiritual nature of circles/self coupled with working on a painting as a group is awesome.
Although the Circle Painting group is not coming to Bear Tavern (yet), we are going to do our own!
