White Mountain Academy
Last fall I studied black and white photography at White Mountain Academy in Elliot Lake, a two and a bit hour drive north west from Manitoulin. I really enjoyed learning how to use a darkroom and the ins and out of a traditional 35 mm camera. It is sad that the academy will be closing its doors at the end of the week as the studios, art store, faculty and library were a wonderful resource for artists in Northern Ontario. Last week Andrew Gugan phoned to remind me that my portfolio and sketchbook were still in his office.
