Catch up is what i have been playing these last few weeks. May is always so busy for me and I often times have to put my own creative explorations away while I take care of my day job responsibilities.
I have heard many Art Teachers say that they get so caught up in teaching, they forget to make his or her own art. I discovered this was happening to me. So, last year, I decided to make an effort to carve away time to make my own art. It has been a lot of fun to find the creative juices again. It has also been a huge struggle to motivate myself and figure out what to do. Jeez, I can motivate and inspire children, but not myself!
So I have been digging to find something that I want to draw or paint. Patterns and line are always fun for me to draw but lately I have been feeling like I need to stretch beyond that and find something new. I also want to one day find my own signature style. I feel like my work is all over the place.
Dreams for the future: I want to open a studio so I can teach summer classes to children and adults. I think it would be a fun challenge and would allow me to have a space to personally create too. We will see……
