Sketch Jam

Hey there,

Getting a lot of questions around "when will there be a Jam?!"

Unfortunately, we have been unable to safely hold a Jam since 2020... And that is the kicker. I can't hold a Jam until it's safe for everyone to participate.

Missing from our collective community and culture for over two years now, it's been hard not to see you all at this very special (to me) time of the year (My Christmas) I truly miss you all. 
 
But we all know that it's just not possible to Jam at this time. It's not over.
We might be done with it, but Covid-19 in all it's versions is not done with us.
 
So, we'll hold out hope for Sketch Jam, later on in Fall 2022/ Winter 2023, maybe?.. Stay`tooned!
 
In the meantime, we will continue to protect our loved ones and our community by continuing to follow public health guidance and remain socially distant, while Omicron continues to do it's thing. I wish everyone good health, happiness and safety in these surreal times we're all navigating.
 
I appreciate the fact that yes, we're all in the same storm, but we are also all in very different boats. Stay strong and stay safe, folks!

 
A SAD LOSS
 
To make things even harder, our After-Jam pub - The Wallace, has sadly become yet another casualty of this merciless pandemic. You can read about it here. :(

So, not one to sit around and mope, I have been on the hunt for a new location that will suit us, when the time comes. I have found a few new spots that may fit the bill. 
 
I will update here and on the Sketch Jam FB page, when I have secured a spot, formally. If you're not a member - feel free to join us!
 
There are still rumblings of it reopening at some point, so I will cross my fingers for that, but one thing I can say with confidence is this... 
 
WE WILL JAM AGAIN! 
But only when it is safe for everyone, to do so in person. 
 
Promise.
Jim

WINTER 2022 TEACHING SCHEDULE, REVISED

 
Very excited for this upcoming second-half of our term! 

 
Come week 8, we'll be safely back in studio, doing what we do, together! 
 
This is great news, for everyone! We'll of course continue to follow Seneca health protocols, including keeping our distance and continuing to wear masks for one another, while inside and outside Seneca campus facilities.
 
I for one, have missed being at the College, and in studio - with my amazing, creative people! I'm looking forward to getting back to working in-person with you all, again!
 
I'm also really excited that come March, I have been given the opportunity to lead another robust and exciting subject in ILS - Children's Illustration!
 
I can't wait to meet all my "new-to-me" ILS-2 students, (whom which, I've heard crazy-good-things about) as we embark on an exciting and fulfilling  second-half, together... Gonna be fun, folks! 😃
 
Also wanna throw a shout-out to my CHR431 C-Class, as they had their class moved in order for me to be able to deliver the above mentioned ILS224 classes. Thank you.

So, if you need to find me, here's where I'll be folks!

Here's to a great second-half of our term!
Jim
