Workshop week

Hi all, hope you have had a fantastic week. This week is shaping up to be a busy one with three classes/workshops on the go.

PNH Phone: 9484 5806
Tomorrow is the first session of my Recycled Art Workshops. We will be creating mixed media buildings inspired by my 'Home to Roost' series (see photo), using wood off cuts, old sewing patterns and more. I will put some photos up next week. There is space for a couple more people so if you are interested contact Preston Neighbourhood House to book.

Wednesday is Drawing and Painting classes. I love turning up every week to see what everyone is creating and helping them on their journey. Thursday is an art with kids day. I am working at a primary school all day running workshops on collage, with a focus on healthy bodies. It is a full on day with 5 groups of kids with 55 minute workshops each. Here are some photos of some of the work from the Prep-2 children from last week.

                                                                                                         They have been creating a plate with their favourite fruit and vegetable using ripped paper on one piece and cut paper on the other. The Grade 3-6 children are doing a silhouette where they fill the head with a variety of ways we keep our body healthy. We are looking at nutritional, physical, mental and spiritual health. A lot to fit in less than an hour but the kids are all doing a great job.
 I am rounding the week off judging an art competition at my daughters high school. Middle school students are designing a metal piece based on a haiku they have written, with cash prizes up for grabs. I am really looking forward to seeing their designs.
It doesn't look like there will be much studio time this week- good thing I enjoy teaching as it's looking to be a fun week. Hope you have a great one too.
