What a wonderful weekend at Durham College in Oshawa. I didn’t even begin to get photos of all the pieces on display, but I certainly have enough to provide a feel for the wonderful work I saw (and several blog posts). As well as the various guild displays, there were several specialty displays and I’m going to start with one that I just loved. “The Teachers Challenge”.
Members of the teachers group were given a challenge.
They were given this line drawing…
….and challenged to hook it …any way they liked.
The wide variety of treatments of the rocks, shows an intimate knowledge of the Canadian Shield and the infinite possible colours in granite
….some chose the special effects of a sunset…with a silhouette style
Wow! What talent…..and what a lesson on the endless possibilities of a black line drawing!
….and that was just one small display….I’ll show another one next blog.
In the meantime…I’m recouperating from all the fun and food and laughter of a marvelous weekend away with hookers.
Thanks for dropping by.
