I’ve had terrible internet problems for the last 10 days, just as we upgraded our printer and pc (we lease them for the newspaper so have to change every 3 years) and it’s been a *nightmare*. It seems to be fixed, thank goodness. It’s even used up a lot of my art time, which is never good for my temperament 😉
So now I am back to creating art, including journal pages to help me remember everything I am learning as part of Dr Duc Vuong’s Leap Year Challenge.
I’m teaching a Dylusions art class in Greymouth in early April and have been busy putting class packs together – I’m excited about it and hope others are too. Bookings can be made through Left Bank Art Gallery.
I haven’t posted for a fortnight because I’ve been busy with other things, although still doing my art. I’m doing Dr Duc Vuong’s Leap Year Challenge. He’s an international weight loss surgeon but this is about ‘whole of life’ improvement.
It’s very challenging, including timewise, and I’m learning so much. He has an ‘accept no excuses, cut the bullshit’ approach. I have to speak with my Accountability Partner every day – thanks Penny! I’m documenting some of that learning in my art journals, aside from taking notes.
I’m also preparing to teach some more art classes in Greymouth in early April, so am sitting in the evenings cutting out over 350 stamped images for the class packs. I just shouted myself a new pair of Tim Holtz Tonic scissors 😉
I love teaching art, but it requires a lot of preparation if you want people to get the most out of it. Over the last week or so I’ve been working on samples for the advanced gelli print class I’m teaching in Greymouth in early December. You can book though Left Bank Art Gallery or message me. Each person who attends gets a class kit with instructions, sample photos, mixed media paper and so on – that’s why booking is essential.
Here’s a sneak preview of the process, and how the prints progress from initial layers to a (possibly) finished print or two.
