It's a Teaser
Okay, so this week has been a little hectic and my posts may not be reflecting my usual joie de vivre.
What I have accomplished is the spring edition of the n-vis-n newsletter, which will feature an interview with Vally Mestroni, pictured here with her work, who is teaching Color Methodologies online from Montreal. It also features the longest list of instructor accomplishments I've ever compiled since the beginning of (newsletter) time in 2006.
Seriously, our people are busy.
Here is my favorite part of the interview with Vally:
"In my last year of high school, my art teacher asked me what I was going to pursue and I said I wanted to be a social worker. She bluntly told me that it wasn’t the right field for me and urged me to continue my studies in the visual arts.
She submitted an application to the art department at Dawson College in downtown Montreal, helped me put together a portfolio, and accompanied me to the interview. She spoke so passionately to the instructors they thought she was my mother!"
The links are mine, and for fun. Vally's mother is not Maria Von Trapp (as played by Julie Andrews) nor did she attend a fictional high school in Michigan with James Franco.
The complete interview can be read in the spring n-vis-n 2009 newsletter. The PDF can be viewed on this blog, to your right.
