‘Art at The HeART’ Erewash

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

As mentioned before I have been lucky this year to have the opportunity to be part of the ”Art at The HeART’ Erewash. I attended 5 free workshops and learned about working with people with Dementia and had the great time shadowing an Artist at  Midway Hospital Ilkeston. I had the chance to run a ‘Drawing for Wellbeing Workshop! Please see Photos…

Finally got the chance to have a look at the Exhibition I helped with during the summer at the Quad in Derby!

I attended  all  of the family  work shops which involved making imagery for the following stations:

Interactive Forest, Virtual Telescope, Animation X & Touch Screen  Arcade Machine. I had a wonderful time in the summer being involved in such a rewarding and creative  project. Please take a peek at some of the photos of the exhibition I took for my happy memory box! Can you spot some of my characters in a tree ?….Tweet Tweet!!

School Workshops – came out of the Blue!

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Last month I bumped into my Senior School Art Teacher, out of the Blue at an Arts Council meeting!

We both got chatting and she asked me if I would be interested in running 4 Photoshop CS3 workshops to sixth formers on Thursday mornings! I said “Yes please”!

Over the last month I have spent alot of my time  preparing the workshops, as it is all very new to me!

The students have been working on the themes Knots, Materials and Folds so  I have planned 3 workshops:

 

• How to Draw over an image in Photoshop CS3

• Repeat Pattern

• Random Repeat Pattern

Draw over an image-Photoshop CS3

The first workshop should have started on the 5th February-but unfortunately the School was cancelled because of unexpected snow!

 I took most of the morning off,  after egg and soldiers and a cup of tea. I had  lots of fun  in the snow  with my niece and dad, we made a Snowman and danced around in our ‘Patterned Wellies!’

I’m now half way through the workshops and have really enjoyed it , they’re a lovely bunch of students to work with, I’ll be very sad when I come to do the last workshop, as working in my old Art classroom has brought back so many happy memories!

3rd & 17th September – Creative Industry Network workshops (CIN)

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

I attended 2 invaluable workshops ‘Back to the Future’  which was all about business planning and ‘Life’s a Pitch’! on Presentation skills.  Both only cost a fiver each which was worth every penny.

Tracy Pepper from Piu-a little more

She presented a really informative workshop about business planning. She also provides a service called walking coach where she takes clients out in the countryside – I really liked this idea -she was very impressed with my business card and mission statement.

Kate Lee presented the ‘Life’s’ a Pitch” workshop.  It was a laugh a minute. She gave me some really useful comments on my presentation skills. I’m one of the 90% of people who hate giving presentations.  I generally have to lower the pitch of my voice as it seems to get higher with nerves when I talk to an audience. Her advice was as follows:

“Meanwhile do those simple little exercises (the humming glide and the humm humm agreeing noise, then speaking on that note.  It’s very much about trying out new sounds and using them.  Read aloud lowering the pitch slightly - a little every day and gradually it won’t feel so strange.  It’s all about re-training muscles.  The breathing and ‘centring’ will be excellent for you too”.
