Congratulations everyone. We are now at the end of 2016 and look how much sketching progress you’ve all made.
Your tutors have so enjoyed being with you as you’ve had your ups and downs (and we all do) and seeing how you learn from trying things out and seeing what works and why.
We’ve had wonderful compliments from you about how you had no idea that you could do anything like this. To sketch and how much you love it. And how much you love the new friends you make.
We’ve explored new ideas we’ve never tried before and everyone is excited. We’ve developed our own unique style of travel sketching.
We each make this journey and every week our confidence grows. Our classes are planned around you learning something new in every class so you’ll always be motivated and challenged no matter how many years you’ve been with us.
For us it’s not about awards and glory. We just like to enjoy our sketching time with friends and feel happy with our results.
Weather this week has dictated where we spent our Week 10 end of term Adventure. Either high heat or poring rain. Each class has covered a fair bit of territory between Collaroy and Botanical Gardens and in between avoiding puddles or heat.
This gets you used to real deal travel sketching. You never know what the weather will be or what you’ll sketch. You make decisions on the run and sketch whats around you when you can. Sounds like life really!
All of this becomes part of your sketching diary. The place where you keep all your sketches and notes. All a wonderful journey about your life and memories. All created by you and totally unique.
Although our classes are over meantime we have lots to keep you busy.
Till next week.

WEEK 10 TERM4. DECEMBER 16 ’16
This last week of Term 4 we reviewed our work and how amazingly everyone had progressed over the weeks.
Then a bit of fun applying pens, paint ( even nail varnish) all with the purpose of creating our own amazing personalised Christmas wrapping paper .
We all brought along a small object and sketched these. Lots of fun and something to make giving at Christmas just that bit more special.
A great year and look forward to seeing many of you continuing next year . Happy Christmas and 2017 everyone :)) Tony
