“Winter is a season of recovery and preparation.” – Paul Theroux
Has winter finished yet?? Spring is in the air but it still kind of feels like winter… the sun is out today and yet here I sit in my university post graduate studio pretty much hugging a borrowed heater!?! I don’t like the cold, at all.
I have barely stopped since the festive season, always seems to be something to do, work to make, stewarding to do, an event to prepare for, an essay to complete, a whippet to walk etc… if winter is really the season of recovery and preperation then I don’t think it’s over yet, not for me anyway… still so much to do!
I have to say though, that even though I have been a busy winter bee, I am really enjoying my post graduate MA experience thus far. I do believe that I am getting a lot out of it, even amidst the theoretical chaos in my head.
The ‘Artworld’ art theory element of the MA has now ended (hurrah!!) but seriously, it really was a very interesting module and I do believe I passed, just 😉
Now it is time to focus on my practical work and the ‘Vocational Practice’ module. This module is mostly about teaching practice and working as a freelance professional artist. It has been really interesting so far.
I have even had the opportunity to get some real paid teaching experience; introducing BA Fine Art first year students to my Cyanotype world for a start…..
