Enjoy a few samples of work from my first group of online students from The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). They grew tremendously over the 10-week course, and I couldn't be prouder of them! I'm teaching again this winter and can't wait to see the lightbulbs glow as the course progresses.
About a year ago with Advent, DLR, Haselden, and The University of Wyoming, I was working on the interactive UI and final display designs of the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center. As we head into the grand opening anniversary this October, my heart is thankful. From the initial pitch and research to the final celebration beside colleagues, donors, and students, this project will remain in my heart for a long time. See more on the project here.
I love my alma mater. A little blast from the past, part of my MFA thesis, was featured on SCAD Portfolios in August. You can see it here: http://portfolios.scad.edu/gallery/2172945/Interactive-Light-Sculpture Or on my website.
They call me Professor Ludlam, though I tell them they can call me Renée. :) In March, I taught my first undergraduate course at The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), GRDS 285, Graphic Design Media Management. It is an early level graphic design course, so many of the students were from other majors. The diverse and fantastic group of 20 students grew tremendously over the 10-week course, and I couldn't be prouder of them. They taught me much along the way, and I am excited to teach again in the fall.
A few examples of student work:
In February 2015, The Grand Bohemian Gallery at the Mansion on Forsyth in Savannah, GA added me to their collection of represented artists. My works have been seen in their monthly First Friday Art March events, and we are planning for a featured exhibition in the fall. I'll keep you posted on dates for the show. Also, the gallery is opening a location in Charleston, SC. Stay tuned for updates!

At some point, all creatives have faced a block. Moving past it can be a daunting task. I know, because I've been there. Join me for a workshop on process where you can learn about how I work, share your techniques, learn new methods, and get creating! I look forward to seeing you there. :) Bring a sketchbook, something to write with, and a camera/ camera phone.
I'm excited to announce I received a Fresh Exhibitions Fellowship and will have a solo show, Con-tex-ture, later this month through December. Con-tex-ture invites viewers into visual environments for the mind to wander, discover, and create. Featuring all-new multimedia fine art, the exhibition will showcase my latest personal explorations.

I was asked by SCAD to speak as a panelist, sharing business tips and stories about what it's like to work for myself. We had about 100-125 students who asked fantastic questions.
