EACH WEEK OFFERS an evening of solace, laughter, rejuvenation. Arriving at the One Love Generation studio means that I am lucky enough to be making some amazing art with a group of intense and thoughtful kids. I am so excited to be stepping up from Volunteer to the Studio Night Instructor for this coming school year.
I first met the inspiring community at One Love Generation through my residency with The Creatives Project. As my TCP residency comes to a close, I am delighted to continue my time at One Love in this new position.
Thank you to One Love Generation for welcoming me into your school house on the farm in the middle of our bustling city. I am looking forward to teaching, learning, and growing along with you!
BIO: Ashley L. Schick makes works on paper and artists’ books. The daughter of a biology teacher and an electrical engineer, her work focuses on the proximity of urban and pastoral environments, particularly observing the abstract forms and compositions found in industrial infrastructure and debris. After graduating with a Master of Fine Art in Printmaking, Ms. Schick co-founded Straw Hat Press, a fine art publishing and contract printshop at the Goat Farm Arts Center, with Laura Cleary and Shaun McCallum. She also worked as an artist’s assistant to sculptor Brian Dettmer, initially through his grant from MOCA-GA’s Working Artist Project. From the fall of 2011 to the fall of 2013, Ms. Schick was selected to be a part of the Creatives Project’s Artist-In-Studio Residency Program. Her work, represented locally by Kai Lin Art, has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
