Studio art major Doug Hartnett hasn’t done ceramics for a while. (“Most of my artistic expression is in performance arts: I’ve been singing in a band for 17 years.”) However, he recently visited a national park near his home in Maryland with his five-year-old son. “There’s a ceramics studio there, and Cole was fascinated by a throwing demonstration. When we got home he immediately crawled under our deck and dug up enough mud to make three pinch pots…so maybe he will draw me back in!” For more about Doug, see “People & Projects.”
As for me, life is crazy and wonderful with teenagers Danielle, 15, and Jason, 14; a very active 8-year-old, Ryan; a great husband; and a large chocolate Lab! I am hoping that at least one of my kids will want to attend Skidmore.
