I was invited by Penrhos College to come and work with their year 7 and year 9 students who are working on linocut. I am also mentoring a year 12 student who is using linocut to create her final project. Today we did chin colle on the year 9 sample blocks. They did these pieces as a precursor to larger ones they are working on now. So far I have been incredibly impressed with the standard of the work.
During my short stay there, I am also working on some of my own work and have a display of my work up in the gallery area adjacent to the art room. I have talked about my work to several classes but will be having a more formal artist talk in the first week of next term (date to be advised).
I have felt very welcomed by the staff and the students are focused and attentive. I am really enjoying my stay.
