SFA offers children’s optical illusion art workshop

Optical illusions will be the focus of a children’s art workshop to be offered by the School of Art from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 22, at The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House.

Participants in the class, which is open to first through eighth graders, will view “Rufus Butler Seder: LIFETILES,” learning about Seder’s optical glass-tiled murals popularly known as “movies for walls.”

The students will then create their own optical illusions and artwork inspired by the exhibition, explained Dawn Stienecker, SFA lecturer of art education. She and SFA art education majors will teach the workshop.

Registration for each class is $5 and covers the cost of the materials and refreshments. Parents may pre-register by e-mailing Stienecker at stieneckdg@sfasu.edu and providing the child’s name and age.

The Cole Art Center is located at 329 E. Main St.

 

News & Announcements

March Cybersecurity Newsletter now posted

This month's topic is Cyber Ethics. The explosion of social networking and the ubiquitous sharing and posting of so much information online has changed the way we communicate. We must ensure that users understand their responsibilities for conducting themselves online.

An important component of that is Cyber Ethics, which refers to the code of responsible behavior on the Internet. We should all employ the basic tenets of Cyber Ethics to be good "cyber citizens." You may view the newsletter at www.sfasu.edu/itsecurity

   
The BIG Event job request forms available!

Job Request Forms for The BIG Event are now live at www.sfasu.edu/thebigevent! SFA faculty and staff are eligible to apply for a job for students to complete during the third annual day of service, to be held Friday, April 29.

Potential projects include cleaning, yard work, painting, etc. This day of service is NOT based on socio-economic need, but rather as a way for SFA students to say “thank you” to the campus and community for all of their support.

Anyone in the community is eligible to apply for a job, so apply for one and then pass the word along to local family and friends! For more information, please contact Jamie Bouldin, assistant director for leadership and service, at jfbouldin@sfasu.edu.

Spring cleaning?: To clear cobwebs from hard-to-reach places without making a mess, cover the bristle end of your broom with a damp pillowcase, secure with a rubber band and swat. The webs cling to the moist fabric, which you can then easily toss into the wash.
