If you thought my absence from blogging this weekend was in response to the comment that spawned this post last week, you’d be wrong. Over the last two days, I spent 14 hours attending a free online class from 6:00 pm -1:00 am on both Friday and Saturday night. It was a photography related class that offered some great information. I found it helpful and hopeful and feel sure you’ll see the influence in my future work.
The Art Show
I wanted to share a few photos from the art opening last week that showcased the work of the students at our village primary school. If you remember, I wrote about the after school class which was the work of my friend Tina who had great help and support from Lara, another talented friend of mine.
Tina & Lara before the show with the student’s art.
Tina put together a book of photos and even printed my blog post about the class and put it in the book as well.
People were encouraged to take the art books off the wall display to have a proper look.
Tina is talking with our friend and neighbor Betty who is wearing blue, and Betty’s friend Beryl, in red.
There were loads of people for the opening and the children seemed pleased by the interest of so many. The show will be available to see for the next two weeks.
I remember this little girl from the class and it was great to see her explaining her work with such confidence.
There were yummy treats, teas, juices, and coffee.
There was even a book to sign at the entrance just like you’d see at any art show and in all the excitement, I forgot to sign it.
Looks like a wonderful show. And – hope the online class was good – Jasmine Starr? (just guessing)! We all – at times – need a break..and some silence.
Great to see the show so well attended by all ages. I hope visitors all went away inspired to try their own art..
Another great blog, thanks Elizabeth. This one is going in the album too 🙂
Looks like a lovely and creative show. As an ignorant American, though, I am curious – what’s a “cream tea”?!
Dee ~ I had to change my post because what I had written about cream teas made it seem as if it was a kind of tea rather than the yummy treat it really is. Cream tea would be tea, but it would also include several scones with clotted cream and jam if you wished to include it. There are different ways to put the jam and cream on the scone depending on whether you’re Cornish or from Devon. There’s always a debate about it. Have a look here for more detail. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cream_tea
Thanks for asking and sorry I left you confused.
Oh Elizabeth, poor you. Now you have to go to some grungy place like Lanhydrock, order a full cream tea, photograph it and then comsume the evidence…all purely to help those who have not met with this experience before, you understand. Oh dear, how sad for you…
Dee…I won’t spoil the fun in case Elizabeth decides to take up the challenge..but an American person also asked me this question so you are not alone in wondering.
E – your public awaits you!
Mariellen ~ You are such a comedian! When you finally drag yourself back to this side of the world, we should meet for a cream tea. We can photograph it then.
Looks like a really good community atmosphere – something that is so important in this fast moving chaotic world. I like the way your photos make time slow down.
