Teaching Artist-in-Residence, Fall 2017
Packard collaborated with the Education Department to create the Family Studio: Art projects in conjunction with the special exhibition Walks with Artists: The Hudson Valley and Beyond and trained the Junior Docents to facilitate them. The four projects were titled “Making Art with the Masters” (October), “Symbols of Nature” (November), “Holiday Scents” (December), and “Choose Your Own Perspective” (January).
Packard also gave a Sunday Scholars lecture on Sunday, November 12, The Sublime and Beyond, during which she discussed the evolution of the sublime in art, referencing a selection of works from the special exhibition. She also presented a series of three gallery and workshop experiences, Nature and Beyond, inspired by connections between Walks with Artists and her own aesthetic and practice.
