The students at Buchanan Elementary School in Branson, Missouri got to learn what a Visiting Artist is all about when Tim Cherry came to their classroom. The school's visiting artist program is headed by Darla Chapman-Speelman, the students can expect to learn about the artist's style, techniques, tools, media and inspirations, directly from the artist. "... It is Mrs. Chapman-Speelman's goal to have at least one artist visit each year, with luck, maybe two!"
The students learned about Tim's methods for sculpting his renowned wildlife bronze sculptures. Then the students took a turn sculpting rabbits in clay. Tim later surprised the class with a gift for the classroom, a bronze turtle and fish titled "Stream Team". We are always proud when our artist's make their marks in the world, but we especially love when they impact and excite kids and support excellent teachers.
Tim Cherry has been a National Sculptors' Guild Fellow since 1996 and is a longtime resident of Branson. Years of experience as a professional guide in the remote wilderness of northern Canada has informed Tim's sculpture, inspiring him to create authentic and artistic interpretations of the wildlife that has so profoundly affected his life. learn more about Tim and view his artwork.
