Last year my focus was on developing full day and weekend courses for a few reasons.
1 They allow for extended creative time so you don't feel like as soon as you take out the materials, it's time to pack up.

Nearly every class I teach I hear someone say they feel ‘Not good enough.’
But the reality is that the terrain or distance of 'getting better' doesn't change. 'Not good enough' merely makes the journey feel more difficult - but mountains are there to be climbed, right?!
I've put together 5 ways we make Art more difficult than we need to, and in each and every point I'm raising my hand up and saying 'Yup, I do that!' Do you?
This year, I'm holding nothing back in a series and exhibition called 'Balancing Act,' a behind the scenes insight into balancing commitments and creativity. This is what’s happened in February:
