Fall Color In the Smokies

Recently I had the opportunity to teach True Colors: Developing Your Personal Palette at Arrowmont in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. It is a very enjoyable place to learn and to teach. The facilities are wonderful, as are the meals. I had a group of very hard-working and accomplished students, who were eager to jump into color. As usual, the week flew by, and I did not get nearly as many photos of student work as I wanted, but I did get some.

Arrowmont is in a very unique location, right on the edge of Great Smoky Mountain National Park. It was my first visit to Tennessee, so I planned to stay a few days longer and see some of the park. The mountain scenery was very beautiful, just on the cusp of fall.

We ended up leaving the park a few days early, due to the government closure, but as I reviewed my photos and some of the photos of my students’ work in class, some themes began to emerge. I made a few composite photos that include my photography in the park, with a few contributions from my husband,  and detail shots from my students’ work in class. Below, Karen’s cloth traces a circular path, and Marti’s circles echo the colors of leaves along the hiking trail.

Over the next few days, I will post a composite each day. I hope you enjoy the series!
