Summer Course 2014 – COMPLETED!
Although the summer class was not a huge group it was a mighty one. Thanks to Dana Ollestad we had over 10 Skype visiting lectures, a multitude of new multi-media projects, and a fantastic trip to Vancouver which included a walking tour of the Rodney Graham show and an amazing visit to the Vancouver Art Gallery. My only regret is that we didn’t have more students to share this dynamic experience with!
It was a thrill to meet new students and to work with some new art majors as well. The diversity of the classroom experience and the quality of the work produced was most impressive. As someone who has taught at Western for nearly 14 years I know this type of interconnectivity is not always guaranteed. This summer class was a real treat!
