The Mondays morning sessions at Goldfields Center, Kirstenbosch gardens have been very positive and interactive. Monday the 6 November will be the last session for this year. I will post dates for 2024 soon.
Our Monday morning WhatsApp group is active in sharing exhibitions, articles and opportunities.
Thank you to all who contribute and enjoy this group.

The Ruth Prowse Board is very active and I enjoy the opportunities that the school engages in especially the development of outreach and part time sessions.
The Canvas Collaborative at Zeitz MOCAA, initiated by the Kevin Atkinson Trust will continue in 2024. I will send news of this in January.

Highlights for me this year have been participating in Art Under the Bed, group exhibition. Thank you Vanessa Cowling and friends for including my work in this inclusive and vibrant group opportunity.
Thanks to Margie Murgatroyd, (Africa Nova) for including me in her opening show at the new gallery.
Having a large painting as part of the exhibition at Iziko National gallery in the exhibition Breaking down the walls was a privilege indeed. Attending the walk abouts by Andrew Lambrecht added to my appreciating the educational value of this curated collection.
