Pop Artist, Michael Albert visited SCMS! Ms. Zubiaurre and Ms. Frenchman’s Advanced Art students had the pleasure of working with Mr. Albert who shared his love and passion for art in a day-long workshop. Mr. Albert explained how he went from working for a food distributor to creating his “Cereal-ist” collages, crafted from store-brand boxes. He even married the two passions of marketing and fine arts by building a brand of foods called, “Sir Real,” upon which the logo is inspired by Surrealist artist, René Magritte.
The students were able to use a variety of cardboard package materials to create their own collages which were on display in Schuyler’s annual Advanced Art Show on June 16, 2022 in the Schuyler-Colfax Media Center.
