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

The Arts School – the start

So I have been quiet because I have been busy! 

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!

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
