"Introduction to Sculpture" Scholarship

Photo by Dulcita Love.(Asheville, NC) - In July 2011, student Nakaya Caldwell will attend "Introduction to Sculpture" taught at Richmond's Studio located in the River Arts District of Asheville, NC.  Nakaya is the recipient of a scholarship provided by Dulcita Love Consulting for a half-day summer class on sculpture.  

Nakaya has created a variety of art projects at her school under the inspiration of art teacher, Richmond Smith.  Her projects include sculpture using non-traditional materials, batik, clay sculpture, self-portraiture, and impressionistic painting.  This will be the first time Nakaya will take a class at Richmond's Studio which was a hope of hers.

Richmond's Studio offers Art Education for children and adults with a specialization in contemporary fine art. Half-day summer camps run June through August.  

"The mission of this program is to promote learning of the fine arts using traditional and contemporary techniques in order for the student to create their own unique artwork through this instruction.  More than anything else, our teachers wants to show all students that art is something that can make them happy throughout their entire life.  Not only can they experience this happiness through the process of creating new artwork, but each student will come away from a class by looking at the world from a different perspective." ~ Richmond's Studio located in Phil Mechanic Studios

The right opportunity presented itself to award Nakaya with the scholarship.  At the time, Dulcita Love did not know that Nakaya had already hoped to participate in a class at Richmond's Studio.  

Dulcita Love Consulting has been involved in community projects that give children the opportunity to expand their cultural experiences and learn about preserving the earth's natural resources.  Other projects include a Pops for Penguins fundraiser, Moss Garden Installation, Hands of Hope service project, Imagine Asheville Arts Extravaganza, and the Asheville International Children's Film Festival.

7/1/11 Update:  Nakaya Caldwell attended two half-day summer classes.  She created a robotic sculpture with wheels out of found objects, and a 3-dimensional scene of a person painting with a miniature painting on a mini-easel and painted flat surface to hold the entire scene. The person was sculpted out of wire and clay.  Upon completion of her sculpture classes, Nakaya was presented with a framed award certificate as recipient of the "Introduction to Sculpture" scholarship.

Moss Garden Installation at Rainbow Mountain Children’s School

(Asheville, NC) - In May, a moss garden will be installed at Rainbow Mountain Children’s School in West Asheville. The garden is donated by Dulcita Love who met Annie Martin of Mountain Moss Enterprises at a Women in Business networking event hosted by VERVE magazine and Boca restaurant earlier this year. Annie caught Dulcita’s attention when she mentioned that there are over 450 species of moss in Western North Carolina and moss does not require the fertilizers, chemicals, and mowing that other traditional landscape options require.
