P.A.I.N.T.S. Coming to the West


Ms. Perry has been informed that both of her applications for bringing artists into the school have been successful.

On Thursday November 5th and November 12th, textile artist and NSCAD U professor, Joanna Close, will come in to do a half-day workshop each day with the grade 12 visual art class. They will go through fabric dying techniques, preparing their own fabric, designing a traditionally inspired work and then translating that design into a hooked rug.

Also there will be a Comic Illustration Series, 6 hours in total, where comic artist, Laura Kenins, will lead a group of max. 15 committed students through the basics of drawing comics through short classes focused on layout, dialogue, and characters. This will be three extended Friday lunches in November and December (Nov 27th a-block and lunch, Dec 4th c-block and then lunch, and Dec 11th b-block then lunch). This is LIMITED to 15 students ONLY. There will be a sign up sheet on Ms. Perry’s door mid- November, first come, first served with a nominal 3$ fee to secure your spot. Watch for it 😉
