Today is the last day of the first quarter in 2021. Tomorrow starts the second quarter and that is usually one of the busiest times for me. It’s the ‘headache’ quarter; the three months of trying to do everything and usually all at once. It’s the time where I have to ‘wear all the hats’ and try to stay focused and organised. As an artist that is not easy!
One of the things I try to do in April is to plan for some CPD (continuous professional development) that will take me through this second quarter then with some low-key learning through to November, missing out December because I am always too busy with Christmas things to learn anything. The focus for my learning 2021 will be on printing and a new skill to learn will be burning. Pyrography that is, not arson! I’d also like to learn how to produce some YouTube workshops as I don’t envisage being able to do any face-to-face workshops for some time due to this pandemic we are in. I’ll continue with the occasional ‘Try this at home’ learning blog for anyone wanting to have a go with art.
