Prudence Owens McGee | Mapping a Modern MS

Monday, June 6, 2016

Prudence Owens McGee is an artist and art educator living in McComb, Mississippi. In addition to being a visual arts explorer in her own right, she encourages the next generation of Mississippi artists to find their own individual paths.

That’s only a starting point,” she tells her students about the academic modes of art making. “It’s like a diving board - jump in the water! This is how you hone those skills, but where you go with it is the art.”
