Since January, the 2019 Yeck College Artist Fellows have been busy teaching art studio sessions to our Yeck High School Scholarship students at the Dayton Art Institute. The high school students have created artwork using charcoal, paint, clay and other media, while learning a variety of new techniques from the Yeck College Artist Fellows. In addition to teaching college-level studio sessions these Artist Fellows have created their own artwork for a group exhibition, on view at the museum. The 2019 Yeck College Artist Fellows are majors in Fine Art from three local universities: Claire Bowman is a senior at the University of Dayton, pursuing her Bachelor of Fine Art and concentrating on printmaking. Madeline McCabe studies Fine Art and Art Education at the University of Dayton and focuses on ceramics. Edward Steffanni is a senior at Mount Vernon Nazarene University, completing his Fine Art degree with a minor in Graphic Design where he specializes in printmaking and painting. Jacob Tate attends Wright State University, pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Art and concentrating on sculpture and intaglio printmaking. The 2019 Yeck College Artist Fellowship exhibition is on view through August 18, 2019. For more information about the Yeck Educational Endowment programs, visit daytonartinstitute.org/yeck.
