Bio:

Susan Morrison, well-known for her impressive "History of Bricktown" murals at Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City, holds a Fine Arts Diploma from the Museum School of fine Arts in Boston and a BFA from Tufts University where she received traveling fellowships to study art abroad. She has been a working artist for the past 25 years exhibiting extensively in Boston, New York and Oklahoma City. She brings to the classroom valuable experience as a professional artist and a great enthusiasm for painting and collage. In her residencies, students enjoy learning color, composition and design through painting, drawing and collage. They learn how to create form with light and shadow through simple still-life painting with emphasis on direct observation. In collage residencies, students are encouraged to explore and manipulate varied materials often centered around a theme.
