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!

Telephone Doodles-bears


2nd March 2009

Have you ever found yourself, when you talk to someone on the phone-you start to Doodle…?

This weekend I’ve been sorting out  the recycing and came across some of my telephone doodles. I thought it may be quite nice to share with you what I found…. If there’s any doodle specialist that can read more in to them, I’d be really interested to see what they have to say ….I sometimes draw in my diary too when on the phone, or as I’m thinking….Please keep checking my blog for more ‘Doodle Fun!’
