ZOMG Old Pix from the Lut!
A few years ago I sorted out some photos from my Wa He Lut years with the idea of making an interesting display for the children (as they know all the people in the pix, some of whom are their parents, cousins, siblings etc.). The stack was floating about for ages then disappeared right before I was going to do it, so I never did. That's ok - sufficient unto the day, etc., etc. But I just found them! Uh, not exactly hidden, but oh, well.
From the top:
-Sokai is rehearsing for the play we put on, and I'm cracking the whip, about '91. That's my condemned trailer in which I taught for 5 years. Water used to flow across the floor when it rained.
--Bob - I actually had to bribe my supervisor with a painting to get her to let me have him as a student as he was such a mean child.
---Sonia and I are at the pow wow in... 92? Sonia was a really important student.
-Spap-Ull and Gary - '91.
--Moi, apres le deluge - after the flood in '96 we spent a couple of miserable years at a school owned by St Placid Priory. A student took this photo of me looking at the yearbook paste-ups.
---SJ sent these things to Sonia, who took this photo. I had set them up as penpals.
-At the Bellevue Art Museum with Sonia.
--Josh and Jesse sketching at BAM. I had them trained to take the sketchbooks everywhere.
---I'm on the right, in '91. I had drawn with chalk on the pow wow refreshment stand so the older class could paint the designs. Here I'm touching up and finishing.
-Colby and I look at the designs her company bought from the children, which were put on T-shirts after being colored by a graphic designer. We're at the San Francisco Street Bakery in around... '97.
--'90 or '91 with I think Kathy, Amanda, and Sokai, with one of our school dogs. I can't think of his name... he was shot a few years later.
---Before moving to St Placid's Judy and I held art and writing classes in the Coachhouse at the State Capital Museum in Olympia. It was fun in some ways but a pain as we had to cover the floor, etc., to protect the surfaces. It was nice being part of the museum for a few months, though.
-Class at the museum in '96.
--Sam drew this picture of me on the board - buahahaha!
---A student (Cody?) took this photo of me during a field trip to gallery in Tacoma in... '98? Dun remember.
The school is on the bank of the Nisqually River at the site of the fishing rights struggle in the Sixties.
