Folk Artist Visits Art Classes at Balls Creek
 
Duke Energy Foundation graciously provided a grant to enable folk artist,  Theresa Gloster, and Ginny Zeller Education Director form the Hickory Museum of Art to visit art classes at Balls Creek Elementary.

On Friday, October 3, Theresa Gloster, a local North Carolina Folk artist from Lenoir, shared her artwork and also worked with students in kindergarten through sixth grade. The students created a painting based on a personal experience or idea.  These paintings were displayed at the Lake Norman Folk Art Festival on Saturday, October 4. Students and Parents were invited to attend the Folk Art Festival to view the student art.
