Miss Stacey's Summer School

Dear potential students,

I would like to invite you to sign up at the BEST art school in town. For the whole summer you can be one of the lucky few students who will have me as a tutor. Sort of.

It works like this:
The summer stretches before us, empty of all classes and contact with the world of study, we either spend the summer doing nothing (other than cream teas and seaside visits) or we organise ourselves to keep working.

A few of us were talking about how we'd like to set mini deadlines and projects for ourselves for the summer, so I have taken it upon myself to set up school and be the boss of you all (such a hardship).

here's what we'll do:
divide the next few months up between us
each come up with a project that everyone else has to do
each do each other's projects, and our own
if we don't do it we have to buy tea for everyone
if we do do it we get gold stars (Lucy and Jason both told me today that gold stars would work wonders for them)

what should happen:
we all get to try something we might not normally do (textiles/photography/painting etc)
we all get to show that we haven't wasted our summers
we all hopefully get better at the ART

I've set up a blog already (because I can't stop setting up blogs) which you will all be able to post to if you want, but there's no rule that says you have to post to the blog, or indeed anywhere- I just thought it might help me motivate myself if I have a record online somewhere (as I live online).

once again i've gone too far, I blame the sunshine and strawberries,

Camilla (that's MISS Stacey to you)

If any of you are interested in signing up for Miss Stacey's Summer School then leave me a comment, or send an email- I shall be posting a rough timetable up on the school blog by the end of this week, but it's all very flexible and it would be lovely to think that there were people taking part in other places, a sort of correspondence school perhaps.
