Bar Rucci grew up in a creative household. She was determined to go to art school despite her parent’s plea to become a computer programmer. As a true creative, she compromised on the selection of her major, attended Skidmore College and graduated with a degree in Art and a minor in Early Childhood Development.
What followed was a series of experiences: mural painting, clothing businesses, and finally, a long stint as a graphic designer. It was this last venture that became her calling, allowing her to stay home and raise her children.
Barbara’s journey has many elements that many Creative folks experience. This is what fascinated me throughout the interview: the constant yearning for a new experience, challenge or artistic pursuit. Can you relate?
Bar and I discuss the challenges and joys of teaching art at home and the magic of cardboard. Yes, cardboard…
