Art Education professor Richard Nickel and five ODU art students enrolled in Anna Freeman’s Introduction to Ceramics course last year are included in the new book 500 Tiles: An Inspiring Collection of International Work published by Lark Books. For the students, the images are their first published artworks. Last spring, adjunct faculty member Anna Freeman challenged her students to create drawings and paintings on ceramic tiles based on words and phrases that stood out in their daily lives, particularly from advertisements, and then submit photos of their work to the 500 Tiles book. The artworks of Jennifer Victoria Smith, Mary-Paige Cannon, Haley Mitchum, Ashley Padaon, and Summner Bradshaw were accepted for publication. Anna Freeman previously had some of her students’ work published in the Lark 500 Pitchers book.
