Trying to stay positive at the moment is hard. I think I’m doing OK then all of a sudden it hits – and I hit out on those I love. It’s like I’m trying to sabotage the good things I have. I liked this quote I found, it’s a good reminder to get on up and grow instead of sink.
Trying to learn new art skills at the moment and really push myself. I’ve always loved animation and the new feature in Procreate 5 is such an amazing tool! I had the idea to do a really short Gif – hand drawn to see what it would look like. I’m pretty pleased with the results and am already thinking about what I could do next…
My husband has been working with secondary school students in an afterschool computer science club. I’ve been helping him create some lights that the students have been learning to program on a Raspberry Pi.
I was a fun project for me too as I create a 3D design in Tinkercad and 3D printed the inserts for the LED strips, I then sprayed the mason jars with a frosting spray to defuse the light.
Here’s the end result, think I may make one for myself too 🙂

so every half term Grayson usually has some kind of object to construct relating to next terms topic. We’ve had a giant rocket and an awesome pirate ship (if I do say so myself!) Next term he’s learning about castles and I wanted to do something different to the usual cardboard construction so bought some air drying clay.
