This past Wednesday, Temple Rome presented “Six Artist’s Talks,” with presentations by our Visual Art Professors Roberto Caracciolo, Anita Guerra, and Katherine Krizek. Each artist gave a presentation, showing their work that they’ve created throughout their lifetime.
Studio Art students, along with other attendees, listened to them talk about drawing as it relates to architecture, painting, illustration, photography, product design, installations, and sculpture.
