It has been a year since I took a step back from the art world in order to move forward with my teaching career. In this time I moved to England and taught Visual Art & Design and a handful of other subjects at Lynn Grove Academy in Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, UK. It was challenging and a real learning experience, and I worked with a lot of great staff and taught a lot of aspiring artists.
Meanwhile, I felt inspired again to begin producing more artwork. The more teachers I come into contact with the more I become aware of the Teacher Trap: ‘an excuse to let work take over your creative life.’ I’ve never been the type of person that could give up on what I love doing, and so I make it a point to continue to be creative even when time is in short supply.
So here is the first part of the plan:
- Expect a new piece of original artwork to be released each Friday of every week.
- The first piece of new artwork will appear on April 1st (April Fool’s Day).
- My artwork will become available to view at these locations:
- Throughout the prevailing week I will post interesting facts daily about the previous week’s artwork on my Twitter account: https://twitter.com/Slots_Art . . . so follow along!
- Prints and the original artwork will become available for sale upon those dates too.
Please, I encourage you to bookmark any one of my pages to follow along with me. But more importantly, show me that you care by Liking the things you see and by spreading my pages and artwork around to your friends and family. I have big plans for the future and need everyone’s help in order to achieve them.
