My mum is getting more excited about my thesis topic than me today:
Love the idea of children’s exhibitions…You could consider one age group or families. Your library story youth could give you a few hints too so look up librarians and children’s services too…I also thought you could make up a questionnaire to send to regional galleries as the one here [in Maitland] does lots of after school and holiday workshops for kids. You also have museums and galleries to consider. You were also good at [social studies] which could give you lots of ideas too…You could compare state provision or metropolitan or rural NSW or just look at one are in detail.
Instead of worrying about my thesis topic today, I have spent it perusing online shops (hoping to spend some birthday cash). I would love a new, stylish backpack for summer school (and when travelling in general), and have narrowed it down to these two options:
Korea Fashion Dual-Use Canvas Bag
Large Capacity Multi-Use Canvas Bag
I am (patiently) waiting until Daniel gets up from his day sleep to order one of them. I just cannot decide which I like better — I love the simplicity of the first style, but I love the multi-styled nature of the second bag. Both are also within a suitable price range.
Hmm… I think I am leaning towards the second style.
Totally ordered the second bag (plus a cute mint coloured dress).
Working early in the morning at the bakery has it’s pros and cons. One of the cons is the time it gives me to think without the distractions of the day. This morning I was (again) thinking about my thesis topic and, in particular, a past project I wrote on an imaginary children’s exhibition at the NGA. This got me to thinking about whether or not I would like to look at the impact of art on children, or the importance of constructing exhibitions for children (and the best ways to do this). I really do feel that the arts are an important field and it should be made easily accessible to children of all ages.
Need to have a quick look around for articles related to this, to see what information is out there.
