Mr. Wipfli Returns as Artist-In-Residence

Recently, former art and music teacher Steve Wipfli returned to the classrooms of Ottawa Hills as part of the art department’s Artist-in-Residence program. Mr. Wipfli was invited by current art teachers Kristin Johnson and Hannah Lehmann because the medium of Mr. Wipfli’s personal artwork often takes the form of paper collage.  Collage is the theme of this year’s smART show. To begin the work, Mr. Wipfli gave each art class an “artist’s talk” about his process, inspiration, and work. He continued to work with students as they created paper collages of birds from the middle east made with paper of patterns and designs found in the Islamic world.  The projects will be on display at the smART show on April 27.  Many thanks to the Ottawa Hills Schools Parent Association for providing the financial support for this program.  Pictured below are “The Four Seasons” and one of Mr. Wipfli's many bird collages.
