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  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.
