New Pieces by Barbara Moody

Old School, OK
23"x18" Collage

Barbara says, I wanted to tell a story through this collage. My grandfather was a "Normal School" teacher in the early years of the last century. He traveled around Oklahoma to one room schools teaching singing and music, and participating and teaching at singing conventions in Oklahoma and Texas. I need to make this collage part of a series. Grandpop went on to become Superintendent of Tillman County Schools in OK, and then on to the Oklahoma Legislature in the '40s. He was quite a character, and through this work, I feel like I have had a nice visit with him.
