In October at a sculpture class for the legally blind and visually impaired, two Tyler School of Art alumni met for the first time.
The class, located at Allens Lane Art Center in Mount Airy, has been offered for 57 years.
Armand Mednick, 80, is the class’s co-instructor. He graduated from Tyler in 1958 with a degree in graphics and ceramics. Carol Saylor, 75, graduated in 1976 with a degree in painting.
Saylor was a watercolorist before she started to lose her sight and hearing in her mid-40’s. She is now a sculptor.
When Saylor showed up to Mednick’s class, they immediately connected over Tyler and their love for art.
