Making with Miss Lexy
Sometimes things just work out!
I had the opportunity go to NAEA last year in New York and listen to this fantastic artist speak about her journey as a creative, growing up in Canada, going to art school at Parsons in New York, and ultimately making an incredible impact in her local arts community in Queens.
What impressed me about Lexy Ho-Tai is her unbridled creativity, wild (yet humble) spirit, joy of making, and reach to ALL artists, regardless of their ability or confidence level. I knew she would be a great fit for our youngest artists here at Enfield.
After many months, several zoom meetings and various email strings, Lexy made the journey to our school in late November and how lucky we were!
Every student made a colorful fabric square that was then carefully sewn together to achieve a giant “kindness creature” that is currently making it’s presence known at our school! We were happy to be able to whip this up (with Lexy doing the whole of the assembly work) in a very short (but busy!) week
I wish I had more time with this lovely lady! Below are a few process pictures. Enjoy!
