…a day filled with sharing ideas, final projects, sketchbooks, stories of how challenges were mastered and ways of looking to the future!
Yesterday was a very exciting day: Design students from two separate classes met for the official wrap up. We last saw each other in March when the third design session finished with snow covering the landscape… Saturday the sun was shining, the deck shaded by trees, a subtle scent of flowering bushes in the air and birds chirping all around us.
There was an eagerness among the group. Introductions were quickly made. and one by one we witnessed an array of samples and finished exhibition pieces. It is difficult to describe in detail the exchange of ideas, accounts of how each person progressed and in some cases worked together in small groups to realize goals. Inspiration was based on living forms interpreted individually ranging from flowers, to facial features, the wetlands as a living organism, the humble onion, cross sections of frog’s ears, whale gills and tails, butterfly wings and wild mushrooms, to name a few…
Today’s slide show provides a small preview of work that will be featured at the upcoming Open Studio event June 21st – 23rd. Are you getting curious? Make sure to mark your calendar and visit my studio. The work I saw yesterday is worth checking out. As the teacher I might be biased, but the work I was privileged to preview yesterday it is well worth taking a little drive out to Buffalo Pound Lake to welcome summer and feast your eyes. Stay tuned for more info about the event. Happy Sunday!
