new space

I enrolled in the local art school.
I'm not really sure what I'm doing, but things just sort of happened, and sometimes you have to go with the flow.

I was feeling an urge to work larger and "messier", but I didn't want to mess up our newly renovated studio at home. I also need to get out of the house and meet some new people (no offense, dear husband!) after all we've been living here a year and hardly know anyone (I exaggerate, but still).

After a visit to the schools Open House in the beginning of summer, I spoke with the art teachers. I was welcome to do a "Project year". There will be 6 of us doing our own projects. The teachers reason that the first year students benefit from this as well.

It means I get access to a studio, art teachers - well, everything that's included in the art school schedule. But I decide what I want to do and when I want to be there. And it's free of charge. That's Sweden for you.

This is the studio, I share it with another woman.

This is my corner, my wall.

Sorry Asta, no pets allowed :(


  1. Åh, vad spännande! Ska bli kul att se vad det resulterar i. Synd om lilla Asta vem vet hon kanske tycker det är skönt att få vara själv lite ;)

  2. Lycka till!
    Underbar bild på Asta.

  3. Asta är i ju i tonåren nu och tycker att FF är helt på sin plats. Ja, tills husse kommer hem från Grekland. Då är det slut på vilda fester.

  4. I also signed up for a course at the Art Museum for many of your reasons...but ours isnt at all free. Something great to look forward to!

  5. Sounds like Heaven!
    But don't let that inhibit you.

  6. Sounds like a great place for art studies, Julie!

    elizt - you are so right :)

  7. A project year sounds wonderful, and it's free! Wow should we all move to Sweden?
