"I put my heart and my soul into my work and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh.

In these simple words, Van Gogh captures the essence of an artist's journey – the profound dedication to our craft and the delicate dance on the edge of creative fervor. It's a reminder that while pouring ourselves into our art, finding work-life balance is crucial. 🎨❤️

Artists are often driven by passion, yet this intensity can consume us if we let it. It's essential to remember that while our work benefits from our soul's investment, our well-being is just as important. This quote speaks to me, especially now, as I navigate my current situation – striving to create, inspire, and teach, all while maintaining the harmony of my own mental space.

To my fellow artists, I say this: let's cherish our gift but also cherish ourselves. Let's find that equilibrium where our art flourishes without dimming the light of our personal joy and peace. After all, a balanced artist is a whole artist.

To my students, this is also a lesson in self-care – be kind to yourselves, pace your creativity, and never lose sight of the world beyond your canvas.

FOR OUR SCAVA MEMBERS:

Here is a list of important dates of our main exhibitions for the year of 2024.

We have other events and workshops lined up for the year and will share more information with you as our plans unfold.

In the meantime please use these dates as a guideline for planning for our upcoming exhibitions, which we’d love for you all to be a part of.

Please note, none of the exhibitions are strictly themed, allowing you the freedom to exhibit works you are interested in working on and enjoy creating.

Our March exhibition will include the works from our Mark making/movement workshop with Hein Botha, hence the ‘movement’ component on our programme.

Derwent Drawing Pencils - perfect for exploring the rich hues of nature.🌿

These coloured pencils boast excellent lightfastness and offer a wealth of rich, earthy tones.

The soft, creamy texture, combined with the extra-wide colour strip, proves invaluable when you're aiming to create the intricate details in your natural drawings.

received the 24 Drawing pencil set for Christmas and says she can't wait to bring landscapes and animals to life! 🏞️
