Chaparral 2020-2021: 29.3 Milestones

MILESTONES of Glendale Community College

Katie Datko

Katie Datko (Instructional Designer) is decidedly ‘analog’ and low tech when not at work. She processes, spins, dyes, knits and weaves all kinds of fiber. This past month, Katie harvested her first ever batch of green cotton that she planted in the Azusa Community Garden this spring. (Pre-pandemic she was going to use it as a teaching garden for the community to learn about local fiber production and natural dyeing. Katie’s space also includes flax and various dye plants.) Here’s that small first batch, milled and hand spun old school style – on a spindle. There’s still more to pick (ouch!), gin and spin. Any ideas for what she should make with it are welcome!

Rhona Blaker

Two photographs by Rhona Blaker (English/Contextualized Learning) were accepted into the exhibit Face to Face: Seeing Each Other at Harvard that is currently on display at the Richard A. and Susan F. Smith Campus Center in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Curated by the Harvard Art Museums, the group exhibition presents portraits of community members in an attempt to “close the gap between being apart and together” that has afflicted us in 2020.

Jeanette Farr-Harkins

Jeanette Farr-Harkins (Theatre Arts) play, Turning Over (penned during her 2018 sabbatical) received "second rounder" laurels from the prestigious Austin Film Festival. Congrats on the "Top 100" scripts out of over 500 entries.

Also, Jeanette Farr-Harkins plays – 3 different venues!
