Rosa Parks

Anthony Jenkins
“Rosa Parks”

“Stand for something or you will fall for anything.” In December 1955, seamstress ROSA PARKS refused to yield her seat in the ‘coloured’ section of an Alabama bus to a standing white man. Her arrest, followed by a citywide bus boycott and federal court challenge saw segregation laws deemed unconstitutional. She became, and remains, an icon for US civil rights.

The Seasons

Keith Moreau
“The Seasons”

This piece entitled “The Seasons” was created in scratch board on a full sheet from a still life that I set up in my home studio. The items in the still life represent the individual seasons. I achieved the background by scratching most of it away and coming back in with brush and India ink and quickly created random strokes which left wispy light areas for the background. Note that the cast shadows on the surface are untouched by the scratch tool.
For years, I have taught many youth, teens and adults this art of white line drawing.
Accepted in 1997 Arts Etobicoke Juried Show.
