Jack Walsh Visits NRHS Art


Students in Art Portfolio and C Block Foundations of Art had a special treat today. Jack Walsh visited the classroom and shared his art with us. Mr. Walsh specializes in bottle etching and found-object sculptures. He talked about the process of etching bottles from start to finish, which includes mastering a variety of tools and materials from sandblasters, ultraviolet films and polymers to design software applications and paints.


It was a really interesting presentation as Mr. Walsh brought in many pieces for students to closely observe and feel. Mr. Walsh is a glowing example of a person who has followed his passion through perseverance and enthusiasm. Below are a few more projects Mr. Walsh brought with him today.
