Today in class we were reminded of what few supplies we will need for this class- primarily lots of newprint and 2B conte crayons. We drew first one cardboard box then two cardboard boxes next to each other. The teacher circulated giving constructive criticism.

Studio Time – Ceramics

Although I am not the best at this subject, I am growing to like it better with my teacher’s encouragement. One of my students at OISE (this semester) has just sent me the link to her uncle’s work as a potter – look at his resume! He was at CTS 1970-73 and created his first pieces in Canada in the same studio we work in.

We are now halfway through the three year program here at Central Tech….Stay tuned for another exciting semester at the Art Centre…..
