Biography

I was born in Omaha, Nebraska and at the age of five and began taking ballet lessons at the Cora Quick Ballet Studio.  I continued dancing through my twenties, and although I added jazz and tap dance along the way, ballet became my main focus.  After graduating from the University of Colorado, I worked as a paralegal and then pursued a degree in law. I earned my J.D. in Law from the University of Denver in 1991 and practiced real estate and transactional law for a private firm in Denver for several years.

I am married and have two children, ages 18 and 14.  After taking time off to raise my children and volunteer in their schools, I returned to ballet four years ago and have been studying under the instruction of Barbara Owen at Maryland Hall. I am currently a member of the 40 – 60 plus Adult Ballet Teaching Staff and am honing my teaching skills under the guidance of Barbara Owen and Sheila Savannah.

Local artist Jin Lee has installed a test run of the work she will be installing for her
January-February 2013 exhibit on the front lawn of Maryland Hall.
 

 

 

 
A brief statement from Jin Lee about her work:

Cloud Passage was inspired by the packing material used for my move from the west coast to the east coast. The final form will be a representation of my personal journey, of the transitions I experienced when I moved to San Francisco and back to Annapolis. The trees, symbols of the two communities, are linked by a web to express my connection to both coasts.

The desire to use this material birthed the concept behind the classes I proposed to Maryland Hall; to teach my students how to make site-specific art with re-purposed materials. Cloud Passage is constructed entirely with materials and methods easily obtained and learned by students enrolled in my class.

The current installation is a test to understand how the material will behave in the environment and hold up to the elements. A more complete sculpture is scheduled to be installed in January of 2013.
 

 

Young artists between the ages of 10 and 18 can get a lot out of the Saturday workshop, Portrait Drawing Portfolio Development, where students are immersed in figure and portrait drawing. If you are preparing a portfolio for the Performing and Visual Arts Magnet entrance for Middle School or High School. Or perhaps preparing for college or an art institute, this intensive one-day workshop is for you! Kim Farcot, the instructor, also teaches at the Bates Middle School Performing and Visual Arts Magnet, so she knows what they're looking for.

The class starts off with get-to-know-you games, stretching, and gesture drawings to warm up and then moves into studying the proportions of the body and head. After lunch, students get to draw from a live professional clothed model.The class takes place in the same studio where weekly life drawing and portrait painting groups meet and is equipped with easels, drawing horses, lighting and a model stage.

The workshop is given on a Saturday from 9:30 am - 3:30 pm. Click here for a complete list of classes being offered this Winter/Spring. In November's workshop, there was an amazing group, who were engaged, focused, and very talented. They worked intently, even during breaks, and the final critique at the end of the day showed great promise by these up and coming artists!
