Art School: Semester 6, Week 10

Greetings everyone! Ten weeks down, more or less, which means three(ish) to go. The actual length of the term is a bit fuzzy, as some classes run into the break, others do not, and if the transit strike gets nasty, who knows what will happen. But there isn’t a lot of time left before we’re supposed to be done. It sure does seem like there is a lot of work to do, though.

Advanced Ceramics

Let’s see. This week we are raku firing the second project — aka the body project. I finally have a couple of photos to share:

Public Art

There has been progress here as well. Here’s a series of photos of the project going through painting:

Cultural Theory

This class continues to plod along. Three more meetings and then the final exam. I cannot wait for it to end. Other than that, I have nothing to say about it that I haven’t already said. *sigh*

Other Stuff

The impact of the transit strike has been minimal so far. In fact it’s mostly hit the SeaBus. There are laws requiring an engineer to be present on every sailing, and the first thing they did was have all the SeaBus engineers stop working overtime. Apparently there aren’t enough of them, so they’ve been cancelling a few to a dozen sailings a day, mostly in the evenings.

And In Conclusion…

I’ve been given a scholarship. And no, I never applied for anything. Apparently certain scholarships are handed out via data mining (to find students who are eligible — meet the required GPA, class load, etc.) and then a committee picks the recipient(s) from the generated list. I’ve been given the Xerox Canada Scholarship, which will pay for about half of my final term. Here’s what the school has to say about it:
