Prep Welcomes New Artist-in-Residence

Gretchen Wachs

Santa Fe artist Gretchen Wachs began a two-week stint as Prep’s newest artist-in-residence on Monday, March 29th.  The ceramicist and mixed-media painter will work with students in ceramics, life drawing and studio art history classes.

Prep has been able to bring world-reknowned artists living in the Santa Fe area to the classroom through a generous grant in memory of gallery owner and former Prep teacher Arlene Lewellyn.  Previous artists-in-residence include printmaker and painter Ron Pokrasso, painter and master teacher Gary Myers, digital photographer David Caldwell and ceramicist Joe Bova.
