I had a wonderful day today. I spent the day with three different classes of girls ranging from prep - grade 2 and then a small special group made up of Grade 5- Year 7 girls. They all listened so intently, happpily shared their thoughts, drew fabulous pictures and launched into painting with enthusiasm. I am always fascinated with the diversity in images created using the same limited colour pallete and the same subject.
I must say I feel very proud of myself too, for overcoming a personal fear of public speaking which even included classes of young children! I was asked to participate in these workshops a while ago and I thought, I must be brave because the workshop sounds really fun! I have spent weeks preparing, practising talking in front of the mirror, talking in the car, standing up drawing in the studio and making sure I had lots of show and tell. I am soooo pleased with how it all went. Just the thought of it makes me smile. I have two more workshops tomorrow and I can't wait! :)
