My drawing ‘Last Dance’ (soft pastel) has been accepted in the Blacktown City Art Prize. This is the second time I have had a drawing selected to hang in this exhibition. The exhibition runs from 29 September to 10 November 2012.
There are fourteen students and former students from NADC, Kingswood TAFE, where I did my fine arts course last year, that have been selected. At a time when our state government is cutting funds to the fine arts courses at TAFE, it goes to show how good the teaching is and how sad it is that fine arts at TAFE may not be available in the future. I am still finding ways in which my artistic skills have improved because of the practical and top quality tuition I received last year. I will now have to think twice about furthering my studies due to the increase in costs, and also because the courses may be cut altogether.
However, this post is meant to be a happy one, so I won’t go on about the TAFE cuts!
