Hi everyone,

Well, school is back in session! It is challenging, there is a lot covered in each class, but I am really enjoying my studies. This year I am juggling 1.5 days/week of face to face classes with 4 days/week work… I am not sure how successful I will be in maintaining the balance but I am determined to give it my best shot!

(I am studying a Graduate Diploma of Arts Psychotherapy.)

Today I have been working on an assigned essay about “why” humans engage in art making, and have completed a list of the materials I will need to get started on a journal project. The results of the project will be shared with my class in a group exhibition format.

As you have probably gathered from all this, the pressure is ON! 😛

I have not been doing any unassigned art projects this week, but here are a few snaps of some of my stuff from class so far… Remember the purpose of Arts Therapy is not to create “great art” but rather to use the art to help you work through an internal and psychological process.

A classmate has suggested some drawing apps for use on my Samsung tablet, and I think I will try doing my next image in the RAWWWK! series with that. It will be a first for me!

On Sunday I attended a blogger networking event hosted by Bloggers United AU. It took place at the beautiful Seawall Apartments and I had a great time! 🙂 If you follow me on instagram you would’ve seen this shot of me – too bad I wasn’t looking at the right camera! 😛

Thank you to the Bloggers United AU national and SA team for delivering an awesome event, and to all of the brands and speakers who participated. 🙂 From time to time you will see products from the day on my Instagram, as I gradually go through them and test those which are relevant to me and to you, my readers!

I hope you all have a great week ahead, and if you are in Adelaide, please consider checking out some of the many wonderful arts festivals and exhibitions that we have going on at the moment, including:

Locals don’t call this time of year “Mad March” for nothing! 😉

I want to devote an upcoming blog post to a Fringe exhibition that I am keen to see… Here’s hoping that my plan to schedule in a visit works!
