The new year has arrived with an abundance of new energy and new projects... so many exciting things under way. I've been assisting the wonderful Hannah Bertram install at Maragaret Lawrence Gallery, celebrating making with the crew at Frankston Arts Centre as facilitator for their fabulous Hot Arts for Cool kids program, Mixed Up Masks at Frankston North Community Centre, and now enjoying the beginnings of new adventures close to home with weekly drawing classes at Tilba Hill Studio. Thursday evening classes started with observational drawing and self portraits and have moved on to mark making with ink. With two sessions left in our Draw 4 workshops, I've been inspired to spend more time in the studio, experimenting, exploring, creating studies and going deeper with my practice. About time!
Next month see's my very first (local) drawing workshops specifically for kids launched. Bookings are now open ... and I'm so looking forward to more play time with a crew of young artists.
I'm not usually one for clip art but sometimes its too hot to do anything but sit in front of photoshop and make something political. I had visions of paste ups and stencils and printable matchbox covers and t shirts. Whether or not I actually get there is another thing all together but here it is ... my first (potential) foray into a whole new world...
extremely interesting things
I like to make things...paintings, stitched things, paper things and such.
