Begin to draw + paint: Jan 2019


“Its an excellent way to spend a weekend and learn new life skills in the process.”

What a wonderful weekend teaching my Begin to draw + paint course again.  Miserable weather outside but nice and warm in my studio with plenty of warm drinks and chocolate biscuits to take us through the day.  Victoria summed up her experience of the course as, “Excellent, can’t recommend enough.  Gave me confidence in a number of mediums and allowed me to figure out what works best for me.”  She thought the highlights of the course were that she, “Tried methods of painting that I  hadn’t used before and am eager to try again”.
