What a cracking event! 150 community members and dignitaries helped us to launch the 'Our Journeys' project on Saturday. A beautiful artwork created with the Ridley Grove community.
Thanks to Helen Bock (program coordinator), Gerry Mcmahon (steel sculpture Artist) and all of the community members who all had a go!

Another great day doing workshops with young people as part of State Theatre Company of South Australia's work experience week . This workshop is about how playing in simple materials and being uncensored can open us up to having original ideas with greater depth. Its all about reconnecting with our inner child! Great fun and it gets varied responses with lots of strong concepts.Lovely seeing young artists work.Good for the soul!

I love this investigation into smashing apart reality. I feel it speaks volumes about what an artist is and does.

These are some of the images of the latest Something on Saturday workshop at the Adelaide Festival Center. Again, an amazing opportunity for me to send out the 'word' about how fantastic it can be to make art together with your little people with very simple resources.  We focused on making pirate hats, seagull wings and mermaid tails out of newspaper. Its so joyful to see mums and dads and kids all working together and making magic!
