“The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery. ~ Mark van Doren
There is nothing prouder than to see you mentioned in the context of a teacher and I was indeed pleased to see my name mentioned by Judy Francis at Fresh Air 2013 in Quenington
Judy Francis Based in Gloucestershire, Judy’s mosaics are inspired by Gaudi’s flamboyant buildings in Barcelona and Tiffany’s stained glass collection. She taught art at Hatherop Primary School for many years before studying with local mosaic artists, Erica Bibbings and Anya Burzec. Her work is now eagerly sought for its colourful and vibrant evocations of bird-life and her more abstract panels.
Her lovely rooster and dragon fly are lovely pieces and I can only gasp in awe as I saw them at this wonderful exhibition.
The biennial sculpture exhibition held at five acre grounds of Lucy Abel Smith provides a unique opportunity to see a creative mixture of traditionally modern and cutting-edge contemporary work in a stunning outdoor setting. I was truly delighted to see lovely pieces tucked all around the grounds and these pictures may not do justice to the beauty of the pieces on display. With July 7th the last day a glance at the catalog might inspire you to indulge! http://www.freshair2013.com/catalogue.html
More recently another creative workshop participant Lisa Brind was kind enough to introduce me to Horsely School near Stroud. This project will be the conversation for another day detailing the joy and happiness working with the school’s lovely children, teachers and parents!
As I look back at all these pictures I’m inspired to work with new participants at my next creative workshop on the 3rd of August 2013 in Poole Keynes. If you are on a social platform add me on Facebook or Google+ and you can book the event directly from the event calendars!
Have a wonderful weekend everybody and if you can please check out Fresh Air 2013 before July 7th! It is indeed a refreshing sight!
