It’s hard to believe the summer is over. It seems like just yesterday we were picking up the first group from the airport, and now the farm is quiet again. We had such a great time with everyone in our first full nine week summer. We’re really going to miss the group of characters we met this year, and hope to see you all this winter when we travel to the US and France.
Our final week started with three mornings of life drawing. Everyone made huge improvements in their work over this time, despite the occasional frustrating moments. We were also lucky enough to be be treated to a shadow puppet performance by Julie’s good friend Liz Lake, and what better way to follow up a night performance than with a great campfire and some toasted marshmallows. Liz was also kind enough to run a few workshops making masks and scrapbooks in her short stay.
We celebrated Noah and Natalie’s birthdays in the last week as well. Congratulations to both of you, and thanks for giving Mary an excuse to make a few of her delicious deserts.
The last few days were spent making some really ambitious final projects punctuated by some night photography and a bit of downtime by the lake. We were again impressed with the scale and scope of the work in our last critique. We wish you all the best of luck in your school year, and hope you can kep us posted on new work. Please have a look at the final set of photos here, and check back soon for a web gallery of some of the work produced this summer.
