Back to school - for me !


Well I did it ! I have enrolled in a Visual Arts course at TAFE . I have wanted to do this course for so long but it was always too far away .Now for the first time they are holding the course in my town !

One slight problem is TAFE requires 10 students to start a class and as this is a small town it might be a problem .

When the call comes I'll be ready . I have my funky computer bag and my brand new pencil roll for my watercolours .

Dick and Jane will be coming to school with me again after over 30 years not being a student .

Michelle said...

get some flyers about the course and pin them up everywhere...you can't miss this course...
if i lived there i'd be there...would love to do a visual arts course...the closest to me is over a hour away and little miss is not at school until next year...
so i have to be content crafting at home and getting crafty goodness from cyberspace...

Wow Clare, congrats. School. I don't know if I could handle it after not going for nearly 30 years myself. Good for you.

Linda said...

That's great that you are going to go back to school. Every year I say I'm going to take a class and then it doesn't happen. good luck. Linda

We have the same 'numbers scenario' here with the courses offered by TAFE - but no courses as interesting as that one.
Laughed when I read your Dick and Jane comment - they were good books weren't they??

Stella said...

Well done, Clare. Hope the class goes ahead.

CurlyPops said...

How exciting. I would love to take the plunge and do something like that. I really hope they get their 10 enrolments!

Miss Muggins said...

Good for you! I am so jealous now for 2 reasons - you are doing that course and you won Curly pop's skirt.
p.s Thanks for visiting my blog, tell your son to see the Twilight movie - it is very true to the book (so far)

Camera Girl said...

Ah sounds exciting! Can't wait to see what you make:P

A Spoonful Of Sugar said...

What fun! Hope the course gets enough enrolments. Love the funky computer case.

Kate said...

That's great- I hope you get to do it!

Linda said...

oh well done you! Hope you get the call!! I enrolled in the Art Craft and Design course just after my second daughter was born. I did a few hours a week and it took 5 years to get my Diploma but I LOVED it and I'm sure you will, so happy for you!!

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

I do hope you get the numbers for the Tafe course...looks like you are all ready anyway...

Christy said...

hope you're enjoying your course at the TAFE! Good luck and enjoy . xx

May I ask what NSW country town you live in Clare? I would have loved to do the visual arts course as well. But alas here they only do farming and business type courses which is discriminatory especially for us creative folk lol
