Come and see me work!

I have been quiet for a while as I have been developing my business (The Arts School), raising a toddler boy, and making some work, but I am now back!

I have (for my sins) organised another group exhibition as part of the Hailsham Festival artists trail and I would love you to come and visit! It opens today 10:30-15:00

It is a group exhibition of local artists work at Moieties Barn, BN274JJ.

I am showing new and older work, alongside other local painters and sculptors.

The Arts School

Two years ago, whilst pregnant with my son and daydreaming about the future, I bought the domain name of The Arts School.

One year ago I met Sam and we had the idea to combine our ideas at her lovely space and The Arts School was born!

Its been a busy year and as we start our last round of 6 week drawing courses, and our one year exhibition I thought I would say thanks to everyone that has supported us, and tell all your friends about us!

It is a great privilege to teach what you love, in a beautiful space, with lovely people (and great food!)

If you are looking for a drawing class, there is still time to book:

Starting new projects- having reflective weeks

The inspiration word for The Arts School‘s 52 week challenge this week is SELF. I am using it to reflect on where I am with my own art practise and what I want to do this year.

It’s great to spend some time stopping to look both in and out.

So far (it’s day one!) I am seeing a renewed interest in how “we” are effecting the environment around us (my BA final project was on this), story telling (which my MA thesis considered), and lots of exploring materials.

Now to start making some goals.

2018 – The Arts School

Wow! It’s been a long time since I posted and the reasons good!

The Arts School is up and running and I am loving teaching again! Now we start the new year with lots of courses and a new teacher working with us teaching watercolour (Jo Hudson).

Come and take a class and hopefully enjoy it as much as our past students (and we) do! www.theartsschool.co.uk

The Arts School

Getting ready to run a taster day at The Arts School tomorrow.

General Art is one of my favourite courses as it is project based and gives you a chance to try different materials out and develop your own ideas and work. 

If you are interested in this course or any others, please visit or website email me at sophie@theartsschool.co.uk
