It's great to see IPS Centenary donations to the Primary School in Northern Ithaca and High School in Vathy being put to good use. Part of the monies was used to purchase art supplies for workshops conducted by Victorian artist Jason Roberts.
While on Ithaca in 2017, Jason volunteered his time to run two workshops in Lefki. The first workshop was outdoors with students sketching local scenes and landscapes.The second was a still life workshop held indoors at the Lefki Morfotiko Kendro where Jason demonstrated still life drawing techniques. The students were very appreciative of the opportunity to develop their creative skills as they do not have access to art classes at school.
The Society is delighted to be featuring Jason Roberts' artwork in the Silent Auction at this year's Annual Ball. A catalogue of works to be auctioned can be viewed at https://ithaca.org.au/events/292-2017-ips-annual-ball-silent-auction
