New circles, Michigan Central University Students.

Above a new little drawing graphite and ink on wood, straight forward and minimal. Shape kind of dictated by the circular wood form.

Above a similar circle not dictated by the form, ink on paper.

A very mixed day today my wife Zoe was running a Beach Find Mosaics workshop all day as I went into town to welcome business students from Central Michigan University, we all met up at Cafe Art and after lunch I took two of them up to the workshop, very pleasant young ladies who are over here in England doing their final course work visiting English Businesses in Cornwall, Devon and then they are onto London. Jerry who organises this trip with the help of Steve McIntosh from 'onestives' blog and website. We have been involved with them since the first visit five years ago. It was really nice to see Jerry again and to take the two Students around town. Being from Michigan one had never seen the sea before as they have the great lakes near and it is a long way to the sea.

The Beach Find Mosaics Workshop with added students.

Cultural moments over, we then had a meeting about what should be the inaugural 'arts festival' it will not be called that, next meeting is in 3 weeks time at The Porthmeor Studio's. We really need to get this future it could be very exciting and good for the Town too.
