Well, a new venture or two, anyway. I have recently begun setting up couple of new businesses. The first offers art workshops to schools and professional development workshops to teachers. My aim is to provide an opportunity for participants to get to grips with the process and skill element of art. I am hearing more and more frequently that Art Colleges in general expect their students to know the 'how to' of Art before they take up their undergraduate studies. I understand that the expectation is that the student will have learned all about process etc through institutions like TAFE (Tech College in the UK) before they settle in to serious study. Maybe, but just in case, the opportunity to learn those skills is what I am offering
Anyway, have a look at schoolartworkshops.com.au if you would like to see more.
The other venture is somewhat different. Over the past few years I have been collecting and making moulds of the type of plaster cast that we use at the atelier. Many of them are unavailable anywhere else, and I am continually building the collection. If you would like to know more about them, click here, or go to the 'Plaster casts for sale' link on the navigation bar. Those that I have there are soon to be supplemented with 'Niccolo', 'Voltaire', 'The Borghese warrior' and St Cecilia. I expect these to be ready for next year.
See below for what I currently have available, and get in touch via the 'Contact' page if you are interested.
