Mill Artists host Mayfield Students for "Try-It" Sessions

June 09, 2013

On May 28 and 29, 2013 the Alton Mill hosted fifty five Grade 9 art students from Mayfield Secondary School in Brampton for two days of 'try-it' sessions with some of the resident artists. Students had an opportunity to explore three very different mediums: glass fusing with Bridget Wilson, encaustic painting with Andrea Bird and mandala making with CJ Shelton. Students were able to create and take home three finished projects produced in just over an hour in the artist's studios. Small class sizes allowed for lots of one-on-one interaction and guidance for each student. 

Schools interested in providing a similar 'play day' for their students should contact the Alton Mill for more details.
