Explored my first life drawing class last weekend. Never painted or drawn before. First photo are my very first 1min sketches; the second 10min after an hour; the third 20min after 1.5hr. A lot of fun, hoping to keep going..

Footscray community street art part 3. The large amount of street art in the area seems to be because of a lack of feeling of ownership by the community so the "illegal art" is not cleaned away #fcac#graffitiart#usydarchitecture
I really really should be sleeping but I was really getting into this weaving whilst meditating. I was reflecting on a three day conference I went to which asked non-indigenous practitioners the question, "How do you put First People at the core of your creative practice?" Thanks to three First Nation artists/Aunties, I was gifted the skill of binding and weaving using local indigenous grass. Now, carrying on that practice, I am testing if this locally common grass can be weaved into beautiful baskets...it seems to be working :)
We're getting ready for the exhibition openings tonight. Join us at FCAC for the Scattered Tribes: Healing Through Kinship and Yelmo-Garang exhibitions opening night. 😊 #exhibtion#footscray#footscrayarts#fcac
This is what happens when you put salt in a piece and then fire it. Why did this happen? I don't know! My best guess is that the salt absorbed the moisture from the clay, then held it inside while firing. Then that caused the small explosion near the bottom. All the peeling, discoloration, and weird texture though, I have no idea. While it's sad to see a destroyed piece, I think it's very cool! p.s. I put salt in it because it's a salt shaker and I wanted to see if it would work.
