Teacher’s Workshop at MFSM

This summer our museum held a teachers’ workshop in screen printing from August 4 to 8. Seven regional teachers and educators learned about cut stencil, photographic and hand applied stencils for water-based screen printing. Some of them applied this new technique to glass fusing imagery, t-shirts, printing on handmade paper, and using different color paper. A print exchange was held on the last day so everyone traded prints made during the workshop to start their own personal print collection. The teachers represented all grade levels and will apply their newly learned skills in their own classes.

Creating projects based on artists, and artistic movements was the focus of our 2014 Marshall Fredericks Sculpture Museum Art Camps. We looked at works from Banksy, Frank Kupka, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Marshall Fredericks, Wayne Thiebaud, Claes Oldenburg, and many more. Each student was able to experience painting, drawing with various mediums, sculpting and even painting “en plein air.” We tried to give all students the chance to try something they may never have tried before, and experience art in new ways. On our final day of camp, each student was able to have an “art show” of all the artwork they had created for the week. Students were able to explain, and show-off all their hard work! It was a great success!

With a strategic planning charge to increase Museum visitation through better marketing and heightened awareness, we are pleased to report that the overall the number of visitors to the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum has increased seventy-seven percent since 2007. In fiscal year 2014, the Museum welcomed 17,760 visitors, 3,732 more than the previous year.
We believe this year’s increase in visitors is attributable, in part, to enhanced marketing throughout the region and the state, greater quality and diversity of temporary exhibitions, and increased K-12 educational programs.
Attendance is not just about numbers, but about all of the programs and events that a museum offers. It’s also about the opportunity to bring the arts to a wider and sometimes new audience. We have worked hard—and many of you have supported our efforts—to reach schools whose students have never been to the Museum; communities outside the Great Lakes Bay Region; targeted groups of people who have an interest in Marshall Fredericks in particular or sculpture in general; and the SVSU community of faculty, staff and students.
