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

Word pressing problems

Has anyone else been having problems with their WordPress app? I have not been able to post for a few weeks. Hope it has resolved now! Here’s a bit of what I have been up to recently!

France: markets   
Hastings: getting lost 

Painting: expression and inspiration 

 
Listening to Al Weiwei and Tim Marlow. 

Interesting, though provoking, inspiring 

   
Helping set up, and exhibiting in, a local Arts Exhibion as part of Hailsham Arts Festival.
 If you like my work, or my images and want to use them, please let me know!

Thanks for your time.

Hasting day out

Today I met up with an old friend that has also moved to East Sussex. We explored old Hastings and it’s amazingly eclectic shops.

You can find anything here, from the practical, to religious, to the macabre!

And a special mention to A.G. Handy Homestore. A truly beautifully designed store! (And thank you for letting me take some photographs!)
