Visiting Professor of Art Jane Fine and Assistant Professor of Art Rob Knight took 20 senior art concentrators and advanced painting students to Golden Artist Colors and the Golden Foundation for the Arts in New Berlin, NY, on Sept. 16. They toured the factory floor with Barbara and Emma Golden, and learned about the history of the company and how the paints are made. The group also visited their studio residency program and met the four current artists working there.
A highlight of the tour was a one-hour hands-on workshop conducted especially for the students by paint technician and Golden superstar Mike Townsend.
Senior art concentrators who made the trip were Chris Labora, Zoe Tessler, Corrine Hom, Lily Johnston, Hali Schmidt Sawyer Konys, Casey Brown, Sarah Wallack, Sarah Moore, and Charlotte Simons. Other students on the trip were Jim Larson ’17, Ana Abreu ’16, Carol Chao ’17, Julia Dailey ’18, Hugo Desius ’16, Eliza Geeslin ’16, Sung Hong ’18, Cassie Howard ’18, Lizz Spangenthal ’18 and Kat Wang ’17.
Fine was a resident two years ago at the barn.
