school news

Daughter April just found out that she has been accepted as a sculpture major at Concordia U in Montreal. Although she has been an independent student a year or so, acceptance into the program is big news for her. Congratulations April. This ship is an example of her work in clay. What I admire about April is that she has no fear and has done some powerful work with all manner of materials. In her last email she was cutting steel ! Here she is wrapping grass with foil on Manitoulin two years ago. I have a lot of photos of her making stuff over the years. So proud.

On a side note, I have posted 3 months of work over to the UK for my own assessment and am recovering here with blogland and red wine. Guess I should go clean the house.
