HISTORY OF TODAY
I was having a hard time with everything going on in the world, so I created Today to shift my emotions from difficult to positive.
By focusing on the lovely things we have around us — and spending some time drawing and writing about them — we practice creativity, mindfulness and gratitude, which can calm our nervous systems and help us feel a lot better.
I volunteer with Artists for Kids Culture artsbus and was given the opportunity to launch Today in a workshop with the children over the Spring 2021 school holidays — and now, I'm sharing it with you to spread the joy of artmaking and storytelling.
Today is also available in the Connection Arts Space library — the first, of what will be many, artist made resources.
You can read more about the history of Today, the artsbus, my practice and involvement in community arts workshops in an interview with Playgroup Victoria:
