Visiting Artist Program, Spring 2009

“The enduring legacy of a classical education is not just an appreciation of great accomplishments and styles of the past, but is realized in providing a crucial foundation from which to develop outside the classroom and, most importantly, for the rest of our lives.” ~ Brandon Soloff

Mims Studios Visiting Artists Program is pleased to host two very special events this spring. The first will be a return visit by painter Brandon Soloff, who will be conducting a two week drawing course from March 9th to 20th, to augment the existing curriculum.

During this period, on the evening of March 10th , sculptor Stephen Perkins will be delivering an illustrated lecture on the history and artistic influences behind his own work. Both artists bring a wealth of experience to the revival of classical training and offer a unique opportunity to enrich the philosophy that guides our studies.
