This year (actually, this week) we are opening our brand spanking new Performing Arts Centre. It’s going to look like this:
We have invited a visiting artist from Australia named Pamela Irving to help us create a mosaic for the foyer. Every single student, teacher, employee is invited to, encouraged to, and in some cases forced to add to the mosaic.
We as a family have contributed a few pieces to be smashed and added to the beautiful collection of pottery. One was a (chipped) wedding present from some dear friends in NZ, one was a gift from a from a favourite student (also chipped) and one was a bowl given to Blake when he was a baby. Not only is our labour going into the project, but also some of our family history.
***We also donated some angry bird mugs, because they were yellow and I was pretty happy to get them out of the cupboard.***
Blake’s class went for a lesson yesterday and he and I went back up before school this am to continue.
His grandma is a stained glass artist. He really loved cutting the glass, Pat. If you are looking for a buddy, he’ll be happy to help. He’s also recently learned to solder (is that spelled right? Tough word!) at school in engineering, so who knows, he might be very helpful.
