Wild at Art news right in your mailbox !

At last Wild at Art news.....

At last you can receive your Wild at Art blog posts weekly, bringing you updates on what is going on here and whats available for YOU! 

October has been extraordinarily busy in my world, with the wonderful Ararte Conference that we hosted at HKIS for 100 x Art Teachers in the Asian Region. This was 3 days of workshops and arty visits hosted by our wonderful art team designed to have all those like-minds mingle and share their fabulous ideas and techniques!

Followed by the fabulous Wild at Art weekend Retreat at Kadoorie with Claire and I, where we made gorgeous handmade books, wrote poetry, sketched at dawn, we stencilled, we created mandalas, ate cake, laughed a lot and didn't want to stop!!! Our 2013 Retreats have been so popular that we will be bringing you two more fabulous weekends in 2014. See Retreat page for details.
Our found poetry

Launching into further artistic ventures this November, I started my month attending an intriguing Mandala workshop at Hong Kong University Art Therapy Unit. We learned about how Carl Jung used Mandalas as a tool for understanding the journey of the ego and the self. Intriguing to experience the reading of artworks through an entirely new lense.
Mandalas created by Claire and myself during the course.

Stone paper Scissors

Lastly I was part of the Stone Paper Scissors group of artists exhibiting at the Banyan Cafe, Yung Shue Wan on Lamma Island last week. Which was a privilege to be part of such a fabulous community group.The exhibit will run until Christmas and is open every day except Monday.
