Dawson wins the award for best amateur float!

Dawson braved one of the coldest St. Patrick’s Day parades in recent memory, and took home the Best Amateur Float award for the second year running. The float, designed by members of Campus Life and Leadership in conjunction with some of our creative students, and assembled painstakingly by Dawson locksmith Mike Sheehan and Dawson employees Pascal, Eric, and Farley, wowed the judges of the United Irish Societies of Montreal, who organize the annual parade.

Revelers on the float – students, staff and faculty of the College – stayed warm by dancing to the traditional Irish folk tunes of the Wickerman Band, who played live for the thousands of Montrealers in attendance. Congratulations Dawson!

Participate in a workshop on safe printmaking

As Dawson expands its initiatives toward a more sustainable campus, many programs are adopting new practices to ensure that they do their part to reduce environmental impact.

One such program is Visual Arts, in which a new printmaking technique is being introduced that does away with the traditional chemical elements used in this art form. Teacher Claude Arseneault has researched and experimented with many techniques and is now sharing her knowledge.

After seeing the best results using the B.I.G. ground technique developed by Welsh artist Andrew Baldwin, Claude received training on the method and is currently introducing it to her courses.

She will also be offering a training course on how to use B.I.G. to other faculty members. Though priority will be given to Dawson teachers, faculty from other Cegeps are also welcome to participate, space permitting.

More information about the “Safe Etching with B.I.G.” workshops can be found here.
