Laura Dufort in the Classroom

This week, we C-dubs are lucky enough to have our own Isaiah Dufort’s mother, Laura, teaching us through abstract visual art and the concept of tangibility: what is and what isn’t, and how we can utilize it in our writing. Laura Dufort is an accomplished painter, most known for her work with circles, both in striking reds and softer golds and silvers. She has brought in a selection of her paintings; the luminescent simplicity of her work stirs in us awe and delight. “Painting won’t die,” Laura told the class yesterday. “There’s something about this medium; it’s so seductive. It still has value.”
