Bruce Hucko employs photography to express the ongoing relationship between people and the land. Since 1976 Bruce has taught visual art, photography and video to children in the American Southwest, USSR and New Zealand. Much of his work has been with Navajo and Pueblo children, teaching the art in an environment of cultural and community integrity. School projects integrate the visual art core curriculum, school goals and other curriculum areas where appropriate, employing specific skills in painting, drawing and photography for creative expression. Bruce recognizes that each child has a separate and unique potential that requires skill development within a creative process. He views children as creative peers whom he guides toward informed self-expression. Bruce works in drawing, painting, sculpture and photography. Drawing classes blend visual discrimination skills with the imagination. Painting focuses on color and creative image making. Sculpture is often made with found objects. If photography is needed Bruce can offer classes in pinhole photography, Polaroid and modern color and black and white techniques. Material requirements vary according to type of project. Available statewide but prefers rural schools not usually served by art programs. Bruce is available for residencies, teacher training, extended projects, collaborations with other artists, and short-term activities.
Bruce currently serves as a Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program Visual Arts Specialis
