Memes my way

RED. OLIVE. STUDIOS.

I’m often inspired by the words and images floating around the inter webs, and one of the most special parts about http://www.loobylou.com.au is the quotes we put on each candle.

I’ve decided to create a few of my own. Often you read the same message in different words, and it resonates at a different frequency. It may be the image that connects the words, or vice versa. Either way, this is a little project I’m trying, ‘Memes my way’ to encourage and inspire me in my own creative journey, and remind me why and what is important. Sometimes, it’s just to accept that it just is…

Hope you enjoy…

Beginning with a bang! Classes and courses 2015

EXPRESS YOURSELF – YOUTH ART CLASSES 2015 

(with Dawn Whitten)

Slide1Slide2

Our aim for these classes is to foster creative thinking and build self-confidence, and allow children a safe space to learn, experiment and create. Your child will learn all aspects of fine art including theory, history and techniques while having lots of fun finding their own unique style.

LANDSCAPE TERM:
The first Term of 2015 will focus on landscapes. We will look at the impressionists, the romantics and contemporary artists, realistic and abstract landscapes.T he art space has a beautiful back garden and we will make full use of it. We will learn to see the beauty that is in the natural world around us. They will learn the techniques and the theory and then they will come up with their own unique  creation at the end of the term, my using the tools and concepts they have learned, but interpreting that in a way that is unique and personal to them.

THIS YEAR WE WILL WORK TOWARDS ENTERING SHOWS AND HOSTING A SPECIAL END OF YEAR EXHIBITION AT THE ART SPACE.

As always, we hope this email finds you wonderful, well, and enjoying the possibility the New Year will bring. 

We have so many exciting things happening at the ARTspace this year – INCLUDING turning 5!!! The ARTspace was such a huge leap of faith, I’ve told you before that I was manifesting the old adage, “Leap and the net shall appear..” and by goodness we let alright! It’s been an incredible journey, and seen many of us through some of the darkest and brightest days. It’s as much of an honour now as it was then. The space, had really gone from strength to strength, and the friendships and memories are a’plenty! 

Do you think it’s cause for a party? I’m thinking so…more soon xxx

Sara Dowse, no words for a wordsmith x

So in awe and thrilled to read this review of our very own ARTspace cohorts Sara Dowse’s book ‘Schemetime’ published first by Penguin, 1990 in this blog: http://whisperinggums.com/2014/07/11/sara-dowse-schemetime-review/

We’re so lucky to be among such amazing talent at the underground ARTspace, and a jolly awesome bunch of people too. Sara, you have always, and continue to inspire me with your ability to be so creatively, politically and generally progressive.

You’re a star! x
