School’s out. Again!

I’m back!

I never really left but I had a good excuse for being quiet.

I wrote my exam for my art history class this morning and now, I can officially say that my vacation starts now! Summer school is done! I have two months of glorious, warm and sunny weather to enjoy and I can’t wait to sink it all in. That means quality time spent outdoors, and hopefully outside of the city, too.

This past weekend I spent some quality time on the island, a magical place that’s minutes from downtown and a place I love. I spent time with friends and saw a beautiful sunset. I need more of that in my future.

But September isn’t far from my mind. The due date for picking my classes is fast approaching and I’m trying to figure out which class I think I might enjoy. It’s both exciting and frustrating. There’s a lot of them I want to take but I can’t manage the workload of more than four courses a term. In second year, I have access to many fabrication studios like metal or bronze, but I’m unsure as to what I want to create or what materials to use. I know that I’m attracted to paper and textiles, which is a start.

I also hope to tackle my personal work. With no assignments or essays looming in my horizon, I can finally dedicate some valuable time to work on my own stuff. In my last post, I mentioned that I was prepping for some art shows but I didn’t reveal what those shows were. Well, the first one is the Kensington Market Arts Fair. It coincides with the monthly Pedestrian Sunday events, and the May inaugural event brought in a lot of visitors. I’ll be showing my embroidery work (and hopefully selling them) in September and October. The second show I’ll be doing is at a café in Toronto where the artwork that decorate the walls is curated by my lovely friend, Julia.

So, I have a lot of work ahead of me for the next two months and I’m excited about that. I have ideas I want to try, techniques I want to experiment with, and now I have precious and valuable time to do so. There’s no time to waste, let’s get stitching!
