As Yet Untitled (patchworksketchbook), Emma Tann, 2012 – 2013

My lovely patchwork sketchbook! It is finished. Now all it needs is a gallery… Conveniently, I seem to have volunteered to organise an art exhibition in August. Ha. Really need to start sorting that out…….

I have been one ridiculously busy lady lately (hence the abandoned blog.) I’ve spent the last two weeks doing work experience with a lovely little primary school. Spent most of my time with the reception class – which I enjoyed a hell of a lot more than I thought I would! Really surprised myself- it turns out that 4 and 5 year olds are amazing… they way their minds work, their imaginations…. and now it is time for a Picasso quote;

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.

 

Exactly. They are unspoilt and non-judgemental, they have no preconceptions about the world and are constantly exploring and discovering and being amazed…. I really loved spending time with them. Although I do think that primary teaching aint quite for me…. which is why I am applying for a (slightly last minute) secondary Art and Design PGCE! Oh I’ve been tip-toeing around this idea for months….. it has FINALLY clicked into place. We’ll see what happens.

Taking a secretive-honestly-dangerously-introverted-confessional sketchbook and share it with the world, in the hope that these thoughts fears feelings are collectively human. Things that we Β feel we shouldn’t share with anyone else, thoughts that we shouldn’t even have. Make yourself vulnerable and communicate. Honesty is of the utmost importance. These pages tell a story and they scare me. I am not the same person.
