Things are now opening up a bit after our period of isolation, so I have decided to hold Wednesday and some Saturday classes again at Lennox Arts Collective in Lennox Head but to also continue with weekly Zoom classes on Tuesdays as they have been so successful. All Zoom classes are recorded, so if you miss one and have paid, you will be able to watch it on my You Tube Channel afterwards.

  3. Hi my name’s Kylie Gras, im 45yrs & very single & I’d just like 2 know wen keeping visual diaries , woodn’t u need to take alot of different types of staionary with u? U’d be carrying a huge bag of it with u woodnt u, wat do u take with u with yr visual diary?! Its just i lost all my visual diaries & different types of art work ive done along the way, aswell as $100 dollars worth of art & craft stuff due 2 a r’ship breakdown, anyway enough of all that. Its just that i haven’t done any type of art for about 3yrs & i do miss terribly but the thought of starting over againg is daunting 2 me!! And i dont know where 2 start, i am a self taught artist & i do a bit of drawing & painting but i feel im a better drawer though. Anyway im open 2 any suggestions or ideas u may have, thanks 4 reading my comment!

    1. Hi Kylie, Thank you so much for getting in touch. I am sorry to hear that you lost your work but I would like to encourage you to keep faith and start drawing and painting again. I use a visual diary that is only A5 size and fits into my handbag. I also carry a black gel pen, pencil and eraser for quick sketches. I have a backpack which I take if I think I will have the opportunity to do a bit more. I have a toiletry bag which holds a small watercolour paint set and tubes of gouache paint. I have a collapsible water pot, carry a water bottle and my brushes are the type where you can fill the handles with water. I can carry A4 pad of paper and/or a 30 x 30cm pad in the backpack too. I am running a workshop on travel drawing/painting on the 7th December at Lennox Head if you are interested.
      Best wishes with your art! Christine
