The last 4 week class for 2020 has just ended. Thank you so much to all the lovely people who joined me at St George & Sutherland Community College. Everyone made some beautiful pieces of art. I’m loving the journey and seeing everyone’s creative growth.
This year 2020 has been a crazy year and I think I can safely say “bring on 2021”. It has brought many changes to our lives about the way we work, live and interact with others and we have had to be flexible and adapt. It is ‘change’ that we often resist because we have to move from the ‘known’ to the ‘unknown’. It is fear of the unknown which we can struggle with and I know that I have struggled with this fear.
My art workshops have been fewer and a little different this year and when I look back and see all art that my students have created my joy is restored! In particular, this year we’ve worked with an art notebook as well as tiles and that notebook has become a work of art in itself. So there is a natural progression for my workshops to evolve.
In 2021 I’m planning more art journaling, experimental printing, Zentangle workshops and retreats which will see new ways of bringing out people’s creativity.
So when I stop to reflect on 2020, I’ve had to learn to be even more flexible and look for creative ways to cope with new ways of living and I’m looking forward to sharing my journey…
