Hong Kong and warm sunshine.

It's strange re-acclimatising to the warmth of Hong Kong after some really cold days in Japan. I'm back to my old self - no more cough or cold thank goodness. Today I went on a lovely hike with Jack. We took a local bus to the starting point and from there climbed up into the trees. Hong Kong may be densely populated but it is surrounded by wooded hills, some steep and substantial - but actually I dipped out of any steep climb, I asked if we could traverse the hills rather than climb them. It's probably why I enjoyed the hike so much! We finished at Clear Water Bay Beach for a paddle and returned home on the bus.

In the evening we met up with my nephew and his family for hotpot (described in an earlier blog). My sister returned to UK on the day we travelled to Japan so not with us this time.


About this site...
I am an art teacher living and working in Dorset.  I have taught for the Adult Education Service and the University of Bath, plus some supply teaching in my local schools but now I run all my classes and courses privately. This site is intended as an addition to my teaching, primarily for any student who in the week misses a class and wants to catch up.
The lessons are also available for any one anywhere who would like some ideas on what to teach, what to learn or is just interested in seeing what we do.
I'm afraid I won't be able to answer emails asking for comments on anyone's work (other than for currently enrolled students).
I teach three weekly art classes in halls in and around Blandford in Dorset and every six weeks or so I run a Sunday workshop in a village hall on the outskirts of Blandford. I also run a vibrant five-day summer school.. Other than that I spend every available moment in my studio or drawing and painting elsewhere.
I studied for four years at The Slade School of Fine Art where I was awarded The Slade Prize on graduation. I went on to travel and study further finally doing a P.G.C.E at Exeter University with Ted Wragg as my mentor. It was a wonderful year of education which set me in good stead for my years of teaching since then.
