This photo shows part of one of my mother's assemblages - or welded structural creations she has in her back yard. It was taken last summer. She was a non-traditional art student and went back to learn welding in her 30's. She collects auto parts and other metal shapes and has them welded together to make interesting and unusual sculptures.
I really learned a lot being a non-traditional student. I hope I can pass along some of the things I have learned now to help others who are considering going back to school, but just need a little push to help them decide to go ahead.
