Well it feels like that anyway, I hope everyone is well and still in lockdown, I feel lucky that in Wales we are still in lockdown-well pretty much, as someone with underlying health condtions-one of which isn’t being treated due the the pandemic (NOT GOOD NHS!!) -leaves me more at risk, so that’s kinda scary. Instead i’ve pretty much been in most of the time, with a few wee cycles to get some air. I am making online films, teaching art and craft classes. I have lots of students 40 odd and counting, which is quite amazing really!
But I thought I would share a few things i’ve been doing as a teacher, as I certainly havn’t had time to make any art for myself, what with making, filming and editing films all the time! (Something I don’t actually know how to do)
From the top I have been making collages, colouring in pages, paper mache, marbeling and creating textures and filming and editing the whole lot.
This has all kept me very busy indeed absolutely no furlough for me I just haven’t been doing a huge amount for my own creativity. I have been reading loads of books so that’s good as I don’t generally have much time to read a great deal, but I fit it in now first thing seeing as I don’t have to rush off anywhere. Normally! I have also been waking up at 5am for months, so that helps, I am exhausted though. ..but well-read while being exhausted!
