Happy Spring! My name is Linda Cover, I am a teaching artist, living and working at the Tannery Arts Center. Because I love exploring new ideas and ways of creating, it is hard to define what kind of art I do. Most of my work involves photography and traditional and digital playfulness. My Images frequently capture nature and local icons from which I make prints, bags, shirts and pillows for everyday use. What is in our lives every day is part of who we are, it should offer beauty and inspiration.
In addition to my personal art, I take great joy in working with young artists. I have small afterschool classes where young artists get together, outside, to draw animals in their habitats. We make books and zines too! We just published “Creatures in and around Monterey Bay”, inspired by the Sea Walls mural project, and “Artists for Oceans. We are working on “Redwood Forests and their Creatures” in the spring session.
I am the founder/ director of Camp Tannery Arts, connecting Tannery artists with young artists, and also, Art Outside Camp, a fun, small nature art intensive camp.
