The saying goes “those who can, do and those who can’t, teach”. This past July I rediscovered the immense satisfaction of teaching something I love to do. I taught a class at MISSA (Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts) at the beautiful Pearson College campus in Metchosin, BC for the second time. As with every class I’ve taught in the past, it was an exhilirating and inspiring experience. The class I taught was Monotype Magic. The magic, I discovered, was not only in the art making but in the teaching experience. The enthusiasm and enjoyment of my students was so infectious and their praise for the process and myself both gratifying and humbling. I welcome anyone who can do something well, to teach it to others. Not only will your students benefit from your expertise but you yourself will learn from your students and find a renewed sense of purpose and enthusiasm for your craft. Thank you to my wonderful students for the opportunity to share my passion with you!
Below are some images of the artworks created during this workshop. More images can be viewed here.
Much of the class time was spent developing series of works incoorporating the ghost imagery left on the plate. Below are my demo prints showing two of these ghost prints.
What about you – do you have a great class experience that you might like to share?
