Having read others blogs exploring what their aims for the new year are, I have been inspired to define what I am trying to do. I am aiming for clarity through a reflective practise, and as I try to teach my students to have a reflective practise, and I am also trying to practice what I preach. I currently have 3 blogs and am hoping to develop an online shop in 2014.
The Artist in 6a is my general blog that contains:
1) spontaneous posts as and when something inspires me,
2) “Wednesday Addition : Little Piece of Art” to help keep me making,
3) “Saturday Addition” my space for critical thinking by discussions the work of others.
4) a small portfolio of my work
L.U.N.C.H. is my new blog for 2014 to help me develop my photographic expertise and interest. It consists of one photograph a day taken at Lunch. The reason for lunch is that I tried taking pictures at a certain time, e.g. 9am, but then I slept in, or was at work, or some other reason for it not happening. But I am always somewhere for lunch. This project is a document of images of where and what I do over a year, I hope it evolves into something interesting, but it is just me at lunch time, so could just show my poor diet!
Lastly Little Stories by Sophie is my attempt at developing writing, story telling and illustration.
Thank you to all the inspiring blogs I have read this year, thank you for liking my posts, and I hope you have a fantastic 2014!
