Skool is Cool

Fall is now in full swing which means that many people have gone back to school, and I am no exception. I  have recently started some online classes through http://www.coursera.org which is a platform offering free online classes on many subjects. (I will share links to the courses I am taking at the bottom of this post in case you feel like joining me). And on September 29th, I started to attend a very exciting workshop held at The Cortes Island Museum and facilitated by Judith Williams. This is a curatorial workshop, which means that by the end of the workshop the class will curate a show to be displayed at the museum for the summer season 2017. Our show will feature the history of Refuge Cove, located on Desolation Sound on the West Coast of BC. I have also signed up for an  art workshop later this fall in Powell River using the technique referred to as encaustic – using heated beeswax to which coloured pigments are added – and which has interested me for many years. I look forward to buckling down and  learning as much as I possibly can this Fall and Winter. Stay tuned because you know I will share the process…
