Francis Bacon's Profile

Who is Francis Bacon?

Well friends, Toledo School for the Arts' flying pig mascot is nicknamed "Francis Bacon" but the truth is- Francis is actually a very famous painter. He was born in Dublin, passed in Madrid, and in between viewed a Picasso exhibit in Paris which spurned his decision to paint. His work is now held in the Prado, the Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland. Regarded as one of the few great representatives of the figure painting tradition, Francis once said, "I believe in deeply ordered chaos." If you ever have the chance to visit Toledo School for the Arts, that is precisely what you will find.

Our creative roots might have us looking chaotic at times, but there is a method to our madness, and it's called art integration. Art integration is the fusion of the visual and performing arts into each and…

If you ever have the chance to visit Toledo School for the Arts, that is precisely what you will find.

Our creative roots might have us looking chaotic at times, but there is a method to our madness, and it's called art integration. Art integration is the fusion of the visual and performing arts into each and every one of our college preparatory academic classrooms. Toledo School for the Arts is a grades 6-12 charter school in downtown Toledo Ohio which has been rated Excellent by the Ohio Department of Education for the past 6 years.

TSA strives to prepare our students with a knowledge of arts as a business. Hence, shopTSA on Etsy was born. All of the work here is concepted by, handmade by, priced by, keyworded by, and packaged by TSA students. Our TSA Artisans' Guild is a big player in this- you can also see them at art fairs and festivals throughout Ohio in the summer and in our gallery during ACGT Art Loops.

Over eleven years ago, when TSA was just a dream, some said an arts charter school in our city would never work. Well, it has blossomed above and beyond those dreams; a flying pig of sorts! So thanks for shopping TSA on Etsy and supporting the education and artistic development of our 500+ students.
