Week fourteen of semester two of year one - three days of classes
Monday – Victoria Day
Tuesday – Design
Finished the last of my mixed-media series of etchings – a varied edition: “Pretty Kitties” and I handed it in as my final project for Printmaking.
Wednesday – Drawing Fundamentals
Getting ready for the art exhibition – we cleaned up the very messy classroom and decided what of our art work from this class to put up on a display board in the room. Each class will get as display board and a few pieces will go in the display cases in the hallway. I wrote up the class statement to go with our work.
Thursday – Painting
Finished two canvases:
A small one of a pile of draped fabric,
A large abstract inspired (originally) by a cluster of dried gourds
The End is Near!
We had a get-together – a potluck BBQ. And a good time was had by all.
Art Exhibition next week!
Please plan to attend.
6-9 pm Opening Night Thursday May 29
10 am-4 pm Friday, May 30 and Noon – 4 pm on Saturday May 31 and there will be demonstrations in the studios. I have volunteered to do some screen printing in the printmaking studio.
