CMS Student Mary Kirby tells us about her experience in Mosaic as an Expressive Art Form with Dugald MacInnes

June 29, 2018


How/when did you originally find CMS, and what keeps bringing you back? 

Good old Groupon had a offer I just couldn’t refuse.

How has this visiting artist workshop you’ve taken informed your practice? 

Dugald MacInnes is a brilliant artist who primarily works with stunning Scottish slate with which he creates absolutely remarkable art works.

Taking his 5 day workshop was a revelation for me. He had us work with different shapes and materials each day, and by doing this I could get a better sense of the slate and the revelations inside every piece of stone. Working with Dugald was so pleasant and enjoyable that I knew I was going to return to his CMS workshop and learn once again for the Master from Scotland.

What do you look forward to in your future learnings at CMS? 

The workshops and classes are always interesting and informative. Having visiting artists is such a delight.
