We are excited to share that the National Arts Program recently published a spotlight interview with UA School of Art’s Chrysanthe Kapuranis! Kapuranis is currently an undergraduate student getting her Bachelor’s in 2D Studio Art.
The following is an excerpt from the interview: My first experience with art was in a small village in Greece where I learned embroidery as a young girl in my 20s. There were three sisters who opened up a shop who made beautiful embroidered art onto linens with flowers, birds, and geometric shapes. I was fascinated by it and learned the craft. I also used to experiment with pastel chalk while in the garden. When it was siesta time, I would sit outside and draw flowers and vegetables.
You can find the full interview on the National Arts Program website.
