I had the pleasure of visiting and talking to a tiny country school, Mt Hunter, in NSW, it has only around 38 students. When I arrived I was greeted with a chorus of “Hello Trish” with lots of smiles beaming at me. I was then shown to one of their classrooms where in the windows hung drawings the children had drawn with their interpretations of some of my artwork. This brought me so many emotions that tears welled up in my eyes, as they say ‘imitation is the greatest form of flattery’. This is a short video of the window with all the artwork the children from prep to grade 6 did for me.
I love doing these talks and while the children get something out of listening to them and my health allows me, I will continue..
