June, 2014. I received this lovely letter of thanks from Tracey Patterson (NCAT Senior Extension & VET Coordinator) after conducting mixed media workshops for approximately 40 creative women that are considering having art in their future.
The students got so much out of your workshop. The following week many came in with new collages and began to branch into varying styles. We went on to do mixed media with a big conceptual push based on birds and remember acne as themes and they just blossomed. Currently they are working with tags and taking ideas in all sorts of directions. We have seen a real change in confidence and output which has been wonderful to watch. So your workshop was a real turning point. Nothing like some success to ignite a creative spark!
2013. Helen Frost, Ursula (Mum) and Cameron (Son) All three generations came along for a workshop after visiting the open studio.
Hello Anne, Thank you for sending the images, they look good. I really enjoyed our workshop and am thinking of what I can do next.. I am pleased you thought well of Cameron's work. He might be encouraged to do lots more. Happy Christmas and new year Ursula
2012. Vivienne was a VCE student wanting some new ideas for her school folio. I was able to introduce her to new media and I showed her how to mix media within an artwork. Vivienne took four classes at the beginning of each new term. This gave us enough time to look at what she was doing at school and it gave her time to go and visit galleries. Vivienne was accepted into the Victorian College of the Arts the following year.
Hi anne, how are you? its been so long!
I’ve been working hard over the past couple of months on my folio, I’ve done lots and am almost finished, its due in just under two weeks, so every things been hectic and very stressful!!
but i just wanted to say thank you for all your help, a great part of the folio was inspired by you and without your expertise and patience i could not have done half as much.
