Well…..It’s been a while since my last post. However, I am writing from Shanghai!
What a blast this place is, just what the doctor ordered for a change of scenery and what a change of scenery.
I am here on an art residency program sponsored by ACAF (The Australia China Art Foundation), based in Melbourne and Shanghai and run by a wonderfully inspired Chinese lady called Yashian Shauble. I am over here in Shanghai for one month and I am teaching photography to disadvantaged kids and 3 different schools.
So for I am loving it! The children, as you can well imagine, are amazing. Even though it is, at times, exhausting working with young kids, they take so much……but they also give back so much more. This exchange is beautiful and you never really mind. Although, I don’t think I have the stamina to have chosen teaching as a profession. I have a lot more respect for those worthy professionals now!!
Below are some shots of various classes. I’ll keep posting as I go along. This will be the first post of many….or so I intend! LOL
