Thank you for subscribing to my infrequent blog/newsletter.

Weekly Adult art classes
I would like to thank my amazing adult art students attending weekly classes.
We have become a wonderful art community. During these sessions you have created all manner of fantastic artworks, I have advised and demonstrated art techniques, maybe a tweak here and there, we drink a lot of tea and coffee and we chat, inspire each other and laugh a lot. It is a wonderful artistic environment. You create amazing Art.
Thank you for making it happen.
We will be exhibiting together at The Ocean Blue Gallery in Belmont in November this year. HOW VERY EXCITING. Last years exhibition was great. I know this year is going to be even better.
2018 is going to be big and busy.

Kids and Teenagers Holiday & Monthly Art workshops
During the School holidays I ran 5 kids Art workshop. (These were 3-hour workshops).
Thank you to the kids who attended these workshops. We had fun, explored new art mediums, learnt new art techniques, ate lamingtons and created amazing pieces of art.
Because these were so successful I will hold more in the next lot of school holidays.
I will let you know more information in the April BLOG.
A big welcome to my new students in 2018. We start back in February. -Very soon in fact. I look forward to seeing you all again and can’t wait to see your creations.
I love teaching the kiddies and teenagers. They are so imaginative and creative. They make me smile, surprise me and inspire me. They create wonderful expressive and individual artworks, get messy, eat lamingtons and a lolly pop, pat one of my many pets and generally have a good arty time.
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to the kids and their parents for choosing me as their art tutor.
Stay tuned for my next art blog in a months time. De xxx
