Hello Chris , Tatana , Ann, Anita and all +++
Just wanted to say hello and happy winter times + These days I am teaching full-time drawing and video-art at Grande Prairie Regional College (Very northern Alberta). For the last couple of weeks I have been teaching wood block printing and this week I am teaching artist books to the drawing class. It is so exciting to be able to share with my class images and stories from all the amazing books that artists have made thanks to WSW. I can’t thank you enough for teaching me so much about books and printmaking. My experience with you all has been so rewarding and now all the knowledge you shared with me is being passed on to lots of young artists here – so THANK-YOU ! Your website is great and so helpful – I know my students are going to love seeing images of the books and learning about the opportunities you offer. Just thought you might like to know that your amazing world at WSW will be inspiring young artists so far away ! I hope you are all enjoying gorgeous wintery Rosendale -miss you all very much and hope to see you again someday soon + I will be back in Ithaca by April so keep me posted if you happen to pass through!
All the best + big hugs,
Elisabeth Belliveau came to WSW in the fall of 2010 to make her beautiful book Academy and Estate as part of our Artist-in-Residence program. She returned this past summer to teach as part of our Summer Art Institute.
