An excellent program under he direction of Jack Chubey of Bow Island kept most of the eaehers under the two school )ojj ds in c h e county thorough- y engrossed and occupied. Opening address to all the .eatncrs was delivered by jucy Milne, ATA professional consultant from iTcdicme Hal, who spoke on he topic pi self-evaluation. Ittiss Milne introduced the eaehers to the prepared intro- ductory kit for self evaluation devised by the ATA which was available to all teachers and school systems for the area in which they were Interested, jlie outlined the aims of self- evaluation, and then the meth- ods hy which it amid be By ANNE EDWAIJDS CEANBROOK Jack Lee McLean has just finished build- ing a house with a huge stone fireplace near Wycliffe, about 10 miles from Cranbrook. The locals tlunk of McLean as a "ski and they point out the similarities between the new house and a ski lodge. Others know him as a fisher- man or a hiker. But the key point about McLean is that he is an artist. The house is in the midst of those things Mc- Lean paints cowboys, cattle, torses and landscape. On a clear day, you can see far up the Kootenay valley, with those magnificent Kockies on the east and the more gentle peaks of the Pnrcells on the west Cattle graze on St. Mary's Frame, which sur- rounds his house. Jack McLean is associated in the public mind with the Cari- boo area, for it was with his Cariboo paintings that he gam- ed his first major recognition. He says; "I became identi- fied with the Cariboo, and I like it." However, he has paint- ed many other places through- out B.C. He .calls his worfc "semi- western kind of thing alpine and cowboy." It is strictly rep- resentational, and he says he has no desire to work in other genres: "I find it quite exciting trying to capture nature as it is." He adds: "My main objective Is lo do a painting so that peo- ple, when they look at it, will feel that they are there, as close to the real tiling as pos- sible, and to be able to enjoy it whefter they are three feet away from it or 30. They shouldn't have to get a long way away to see what it's sup- posed, to bo." He was born In Vancouver and grew up there. He thinks his interest in horses may have begun during a stay at Dia- mond Head on Mount Gari- baldi after the war. All sup- plies bad to be brought in by packhorse. McLean's only formal train- ing was two years of a .four- year course at the Vancouver School of Art under veteran's aid sponsorship. "Then itchy he says. I got He had worked at many jobs, Including prospecting and mining, before he became a commercial artist. While work- ing commercially, lie started working at his fine art. He dis- played at a few local shows, the paintings sold, and after two summers of showing on the lawns at Manning Park and in the Park Lodge, he decided to rely on bis fine art for a living. He moved to Kimberley eight years ago. He was commissioned by the Douglas Ranch in the Cariboo to do a number of paintings. Since then the value of his work has tripled. Each year he chooses a spe- cific area, such as Mount Hob- son, and spends two weeks to a month hiking and camping, al- ways laking pictures. Ue may return from a trip with 1.500 slides, which he uses for refer- ence. He takes the trips to "see and get like the way a pack will slip off a packhorse. "I look at searching for idea. I may color slide-, mood or an change all the colors a camera doesn't al- ways give a correct color ren- the important point is that the colors harmonize to provide the key to a definite mood. Slides are just the spark to get me going." "You can paint two or three hundred horses, and after you have done that, you begin to realize you don't even know them yet, because you find out something new all the time it may be the b'ght or some- thing ha says. It is practically impossible to get to art shows from the East Kootenay, so McLean does most of hJR viewing through the median of books. Charles Eussell and Remington arc western masters he admires. "Where I've really been in fluenced lately is by Andrew Wyeth." He considers Wyeth probably North America's top artist "and he doesn't go more than two miles away from his New England home. He is so unor- thodox, and yet he's right. To my knowledge, he is so much further ahead than tte other top men in his field. But it's something you just have to try to find out. that makes his work differenet so that's what I do. McLean usually has a fall show at the Alexander Har- rison Galleries in Vancouver. Horsemanship club Raymonds plan RAYMOND (HNS) More than 50 people from tlie ages of 10 years to advanced grand- parents were on hand to hear Milo Barfus of the Department of Youth for Alberta brief them on horses and horsemanship for 4-H clubs interested in the horse program.

He spoke at some length on Lighthorse class horsemanship, foal yearlings, the two-year-old three-year-old and the brooc mare. Mr. Barfus answered a number of questions regarding each class from both the younger people and adults who showed their interest. Jeff Hardy told of the value of membership in the 4-1-1 anc how it effects a club, the sup- port to be had from the De- partment of Youth and the in- tercompetition between clubs which he staled is a fine thing for young people to t a k e parl in.
