I just love days like this!!
What a delight it was to work with the participants from the AYCE program at Wantirna on Tuesday. A group of students and a few teachers produced such beautiful sculptures and were just wonderful to work with. So many different colours and fabrics used. Very definite ideas on what they wanted to make, and then at the end of the day everyone was so helpful in tidying up and helping pack the "faerie van". Thank-you all so much for such a great day!!
Then on Wednesday, I was over at Wonthaggi for the May Day lunch with the Trades and Labour Council, where we so fortunate to hear Joan Coxsedge speak on "Activism in Art". She is an artist, activist and former politician. She was involved in the Save our Sons movement, opposed to conscription, during the Vietnam War. Joan was actually imprisoned for her beliefs, being one of the "Fairlea Five". Her talk about her life and travels with her artwork was so interesting. A truly inspirational woman!!
