The memories of September- only one month into the residency

The artists that came to Medalta for the month in September put me to shame, there I said it. In all honesty, they are the most creative bunch I have seen thus far. That is not to take away from the other residents and even myself, but it is that they came in with such tenacity and creative energy . Their creativeness  surprised me and it was also refreshing.

And with September now passed- it is great to look back at what went on during that month

Pride Day volunteer work. Joshua and myself volunteered to demonstrate wheel thrown work and to also promote Medalta and it’s programs. Fun day but just a side note- little kids love to smash clay!

Alberta Art Days- Medalta set up a day full of events for the public to come out and celebrate art on the Alberta Art Days event.  The resident artists helped out with: making wares for the Raku firing; Joshua and Aaron made great oven pizza’s; I helped  made bricks the old fashion way; Talva’s Junior Facial Reconstruction class, amateur throwing competition, etc… It was a great day.
