Yesterday was the last day of the Writer's Retreat at Interlochen. In the Journal & Sketchbook class, we did final read backs, discussion of which pieces to read at the afternoon students' reading, and then one last activity -- the three-stage drawing, shown in process above.
It was also Lynn's birthday today, so Patty and I brought in cup cakes, one with a birthday candle on top. The cup cakes were also adorned with big, coloured plastic rings, which all the girls (including Patty) wore for a final group photo:
I will post more pictures and even video from this class. Until next time, here is one of the three-stage drawings created by Jo-Anne:
It was another great week, and the work was at least as good as if not better than what came out of the class here last year. Better not just to my eye, but to the participants, each of whom got a lot out of this intensive four days of thinking about their writing in a slightly different way.
