I decided last year that I my art focus for 2014 would be drawing. I felt that I was missing something in my art journey.
In doing so I reconnected with my untapped latent love for sketching. I guess you could say it brought me back to the whole reason why I began art classes.
I’ve started off this year with enrolling in :
- Drawing for a Travel Diary with Joss Gregson at the Fremanlte Arts Centre
My Online Classes
- I just completed Jane LaFazio’s Watercolour Sketching online course (which was about 6 weeks) .
- I’m about to start Koosje Koone’s Just Draw It class (5 weeks) ; Draw It Like It’s Hot (Food Drawing class) , and Character Drawing Workshop – I’m so excited and can’t wait!
- Sketchbook Skool (5 weeks) ;
- Val Webb’s Watercolour Lettering (10 weeks)
I’m thoroughly enjoying my online classes purely because it gives me the flexibility to take classes when it suits and to re-watch the class videos too. I also get to connect with people all around the world (which is one of the main reasons why I started this blog) and getting feedback on my work.
Never Grow Up
I’m a kid at heart. As a child I loved my coloured pencils, my colouring-in book, water-colours, texters and all those things, but I never pursued anything remotely related to this because I guess it’s always been considered a “kid” thing. But now that I’m an adult I’ve decided that this is what truly makes me happy and what’s wrong with being a big kid anyway? For me it’s about having fun and being playful ……and choosing happiness everyday!
I’m not sure about next term.
I’m not going to put too much thought into it, but just to be present and enjoy this term’s courses and connecting with other creative people from around the world. I’m grateful for the internet and social media (there was a time where I avoided it completely and refused to have a digital footprint).
I’ll be posting my drawing, sketching and doodling experiments, so stay posted 🙂
