Throwback Photo/Article Taken June 5, 2008

I found this goodie today! For two years I've tried to open up the email my friend Jerri sent me from Pamela Dillion, a Dayton Daily Newspaper writer. All of this time, I could have opened it up at school on the Mac instead of struggling to open it on the PC. Hmmmmmmm.......

Arts Education
At 15, Glasper started art classes at K12 during an after-school program while attending Colonel White High School for the Arts. She graduated from K12’s artist-in-training program, and then completed a few classes at Sinclair Community College in 2003. For the past two years, she has majored in illustration at The Art Academy of Cincinnati.

“An art teacher friend, Carol Rogers from Colonel White, introduced Janyce to me when she was 15,” said K12 founder and director Jerri Stanard. “Not only was she a very talented artist, she had an incredible sense of humor. I love to see her maturing into this beautiful young lady who is also a great friend.”

Art Awards/Scholarships
Glasper won a National Scholastic silver award in 2002 for a drawing. She received a $5,000 renewable portfolio scholarship to attend The Art Academy of Cincinnati. She loves to write; she recently acquired a one-time $1,250 Bertha Langhorst Werner scholarship award for an essay she wrote.

She exhibited 7 large-scale paintings at the Montgomery County Common Pleas Court as a Colonel White senior. By the time she graduated, she had sold more than $1,200 in artwork. She was part of a group of K12 artists who created the National City Second Street Market mural in November of 2003. She has sold artwork to RTA, Montgomery County Courts and Time Warner Cable. She has shown work at the Know Theatre in Cincinnati. She recently had a solo exhibit at K12.

Future Plans
“I’m hoping to transfer to Parsons School for Design in New York by spring semester. I want to travel. I really enjoy art history, and hopefully that would nurture my work.”

And lol, my future plans didn't exactly pan out! That sucks!!!!! :(
