me-with-camel-leaving-for-dubai

Today during my class with gcse students we have discussed the importance of working on your skills continuously. The summer break is coming in the big steps now so we have set up a challenge to do art for minimum 10 minutes a day.

 

I love maintaining visual journal, especially during the summer , when you are on the go. It helps me to stay in shape with my drawing skills, and when you travel you see so many interesting things! You can see one of my travel journal here :).

 

We are going to do the challenge together! Year 10 (all other years are invited too) don’t bailout on me here! If any other folks would like to join use:

#sketchwithkasia

– and we can have a chat and I promise to leave a nice comment!

I am starting off with a little pencil drawing of a camel (and me 😜 ). I plan to turn it into a watercolour painting and use as a leaving card for my school.

 

Keep drawing!

Here in the UAE we still have a t-shirt weather, but understandably I am craving snow and ice as Christmas time is almost here. I love those photographs by Marko Korosec, they make me think about winter in Polish countryside. You can find more here

There is a gap in my blog as you can see. 2 long months. I have spent those last 2 months traveling around I have been filling my head with new ideas and my travel sketchbook with colour and line. I will share those soon with.

 

Meanwhile, there is a new project I started working on. And here is what it is about:

Constellations

I have been tempted for a long while to create a collection about something that is close to my heart. Up until now I have been looking at women as isolated beings: focusing on their existence, their perception of themselves and their ambitions. But none among us is standing alone; we are all products of the way in which we were raised by the family around us. As women it is our mothers, sisters, grandmothers and daughters who influence our lives like the sun and moon influence the tides. Their relationships, both with us and with each other, inform our personalities to make up who we are. In Constellations, I explore these relationships between the women of a family, capturing them with symbolic patterns, colours and dimensions to produce a window on how a family sees itself.
