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

1) the boy who will be 7 months old next week, amazing! 

I could spend all day watching him learn the world! The greatest time consumers!

2) The Little Art on the Green, more details next week


And 3) 

I have started an arts school! 

The Arts School will start running day courses in Drawing and Mark making and Reflective Practise. Come and spend the day on a beautiful farm in East Sussex. 60 acres of woods, fields and lakes. A delicious lunch is included, provided by Sam. So excited! A few spaces left for our intro day on July 8th and confirmed dates to follow!

The back off effect

Having actually got up early to take the dogs  to the seaside I got home to deal with a giant marrow I was given.

With it I made: 

  • ginger and narrow jam, 
  • ginger, orange and current cakes
  • froze the spare marrow for later

The extra flour I tried out some rough pastry. Who knew it was so easy! Get flour, frozen butter, salt, pepper and a little water. Grate frozen butter, mix it together, stick it in the fridge for half an hour, make tarts (Filled with homemade marrow chutney and goats cheese) and eat! 

Just call me Sophie Berry!

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.

You can’t imagine

  

You can’t imagine 

You can’t describe

The feeling of excitement, guilt, gratitude and pride 

And being naughty , So rebellious!

We are on a plane 

We are actually going 

France on holiday!

And there is nothing wrong with him 

A while more recovery from being so sick

From all the machines 

All the operations , 

All the drugs, 

All the care

But we are here, 

together on a plane 

Because of one persons gift

And lots of doctors, surgeons, nurses, HCAs, 

Physios, nutritionists, radiographers, intensivists, 

ward clarks, cleaners, porters, blood product donors,  

All of them 

They made this moment

You can’t imagine 

You can’t describe

The feeling of excitement guilt, gratitude, love and pride

Sitting on a plane with the man I love

Going on an adventure
