School'ssssss.... out... for... Winter!

Like most art writers, I wear several hats--some stylin, and some not so stylin. One of those hats is a part-time gig as associate editor at the online arm of Canadian Art. Next week, the magazine arm of the organization is releasing its first-ever schools issue--and all students, former and current, delinquent and otherwise, are invited to the launch. Here's the details:

Canadian Art Winter Issue Launch
Featuring free admission, free magazines, free food and free chatter
Tuesday December 9, 6-8pm
Ontario College of Art & Design, 100 McCaul St, Toronto
Room 187 - Lambert Lounge

For this issue, I wrote a piece called "Class of 2008" that profiles ten top MFA/MAA grads from across the country. The mag also has reports about Emily Carr University, Concordia, UQAM, NSCAD, and OCAD, and think pieces from John Kissick and Eldon Garnet on the state of art ed and its discontents.

So skip class and come on out to the launch. If none of the above sounds interesting, maybe you'll catch one of your teachers doing something ridonk! (That's always the main attraction of school events, ain't it?)
