Spirit of Service

When you can’t find Brent Skidmore, assistant professor of art and art history, working with sculpture students in the studio in Owen Hall, teaching a drawing class or in his office working as director of the Craft Studies program, you’ll probably find him working with middle school students in Asheville City Schools. Skidmore helped found two special afterschool programs for middle schoolers: Teaching Artists Presenting in Asheville City Schools (TAPAS) and In Real Life (IRL), and has taught more than a hundred students in these programs himself.

This year Skidmore is being recognized by the Asheville City Schools Foundation’s as the “Spirit of Service Champion.” Read more about Skidmore’s work in The Laurel of Asheville.
