Visual Arts Field Trip To James Hubbell and the Ilan-Lael Foundation

From Johnny King, Visual Arts Teacher:

Jillian Bourdon and I took a group of students to visit James Hubbell and the Ilan-Lael Foundation, located in Santa Ysabel near Julian, on Mastery Learning Day on May 28. There we met Emilie, the current artist-in-residence, who gave us a tour of the property. We saw so many different types of architecture and art from over the years, beginning in the 1960's and on to current buildings and art being created today. The unique structures and artwork we saw included handcrafted doors, drawings, watercolors, sculptures, stained glass windows, blown glass, brick work, mosaics, houses, fantastical interior structures and bathrooms, a pool, and studio work spaces, among many other things. We learned about the artist James Hubbell's strong connection with nature and witnessed his artistic vision of merging architecture and with natural elements in a beautiful and harmonious way. The students also learned some basics of mosaic tiling and cement work, and even had a chance to cut glass in the studio.
