With PETER THOMPSON
Meeting on the first Thursday of the month

People may attend as few or as many sessions as they wish.
Suggested donation per session: $10.00
Meeting in Studio 5
Retired geologist from Post Mills, Peter Thompson, will lead exploration of topics in geology through the visual arts. No prior training in art or geology is required, only a willingness to have fun observing and thinking about earth materials and processes.
The approach follows the philosophy that naming things sometimes gets in the way of seeing them. Thus the emphasis on observation and drawing.
Some of the topics to be explored:
Minerals and Crystals
Volcanoes and other landforms
Pigments, Glazes and Clays
Patterns and Maps
Fossils and Sediments
Landscapes through Time
To be arranged: Saturday all-day field trips
