Begin to draw + paint – May 2017

I spent a beautiful weekend teaching the Begin to draw + paint course in my studio.  Sun was filtering through the 2 large windows and we had a fab view over the Manchester skyline to the Cheshire hills beyond.  Shame we could not have been outside, but what better place to be and having the chance to share my passion for drawing and painting with a wonderful group of adult learners interested in taking their first steps in drawing and painting – hopefully the start of a wonderfully creative journey lasting many years.

The feedback from students were great with comment such as “A great opportunity to learn a plethora of techniques so I can develop my own practice” from Elisabetta C.  Read on to see

what the other students thought.
