Carol Gannon Bio
Hello, Ms. Gannon here. I've been a teaching artist for many years. I moved to Florida almost 3 years ago and have been teaching at Legacy for almost that long. I LOVE art - talking about art, making art, and going to musuems but especially I love seeing what creative artwork my students make. They amaze me all the time. They amaze themselves, too.
As an artist my roots are in photography (both darkroom and digital) with a focus on crafts (paper making and fiber arts) but I do enjoy painting, drawing and playing with clay. I think it's about making a mess, playing and exploring different medium, and seeing what you discover and create.
When I'm not making art or teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband is an athlete who is always training for something. Since moving to Florida, I have become a golfer and recently learned how to play Mah Jongg. We moved to Florida to take care of aging parents and our grandchildren aren't too far away in Georgia. Life is good.
