Portrait Drawing! 1 November

Yesterday we did a little portrait drawing session in the morning. While others were at the beach (thanks to this glorious Summer weather that has arrived!), we chatted all things creative and arty. Elona is a baker and was showing me some photographs of her amazing artwork, which she created so delicately with icing! I was amazed at the detail and precision, particularly where she used icing to do some creative writing.

We looked specifically at the art of portrait drawing and I gave some tips on how to ‘measure’ a face and really see the details that are in front of us. See us below, using our pencils to measure each other up! It is always better to practice from life, where possible, so I had the job of posing for a portrait sketch!

During our drawing, we had a constant guest who really wanted to get in on the drawing action… Check him out as he was running up and down Elona’s pencil!

Elona did a fantastic job with her drawing and I could really see how she used the tips that I gave her. Look at her fantastic work!

Hallowe’en BBQ! 31 October

Today, we had our Hallowe’en BBQ! Everyone gathered promptly out front at 12.15pm, all waiting to sample Claire’s culinary BBQ delights ūüôā Student Eric kindly assisted with the cooking, Lorene provided the party music and Orla and Judit help set up the table of delights!

It’s an amazing day here in Byron Bay – bright, sunny and warm – perfect for eating outside!

Everyone lined up, creating their sandwich with barbecued meat, fresh salad and a variety of sauces and dressing, all washed down with something sweet!

As it was very hot, a lot of students didn’t want to dress up in costume, however we did have some interesting hats and head pieces wandering around, even among the staff! We really loved how one of our students Arisa was dressed in her traditional Japanese Kimono and gave her the chocolate prize for effort! She loves wearing it and welcoming questions about Japanese culture so be sure to ask her about it! ūüôā

Friday soccer in the garden! October 27th

Today the sun is shining in Byron and the weather is just glorious. Most of the students headed down to the beach to surf and tan but a few stayed behind to have a kick around in the garden!

It was the perfect opportunity to show off everyone’s soccer skills! Some were better than others (Harriett)¬† but it didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves and having lots of fun!
