Get Art, the travelling art school based in the Pontiac, is fortunate to be able to offer all-ages classes again this year. Thanks to funding from the Municipality of Pontiac, the four classes across our three communities are absolutely free of charge for residents. 

Today we meet Luskville's Chantal Dahan who will be teaching printmaking in Breckenridge on Saturday, October 20th.

Pontiac2020.ca: Where did you learn the kind of art you will be teaching in your class?

Chantal Dahan: I learned the printmaking technique of etching while studying Fine Arts (I studied at the University of Quebec at Montreal and the University of Ottawa). However, I picked up the simple printmaking techniques I will teach in this community workshop while teaching the children’s art program at the Ottawa School of Art.

P2020: What will students take home after the class?

CD: The students will leave the workshop knowing how to make colourful ink prints with the skills they need to continue working on their own. They will also take home all of the work they have created.

P2020: What do you like about teaching art?

CD: I like to pass on my knowledge and my passion and I really enjoy witnessing the accomplishments of the participants.

Despite multiple attempts to reach out to the Municipality, clarification of the causes of the dispute, as well as the dispute's influence on the completed project's delivery date or when the new community centre will open have not been forthcoming, and are therefore unknown. We continue to follow this story and we will bring you any updates as they become known.

There is an old saying among environmentalist “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.”  This applies whenever solutions to environmental problems are being devised. Especially solutions involving human behaviour.  It means that just because a solution is not perfect does not mean it is not good.  Dealing with household organic waste is just such an example.
