Expressive drawing, level 1 – May 2021

“Very enjoyable and well-structured with a stimulating and enjoyable sequence of activities.”

Bernie M

I thoroughly enjoyed teaching this weekend.  I think both I and the students were so happy to be out after all the recent Covid lockdown restrictions.  Students seemed to arrive with a burst of energy and a flourish of creativity.  The first day involved a lot of hard focus and concentration and everyone coped admirably with a light bulb moment for some students.  Returning for the second day, the students were greeted with more relaxing, fun, intuitive and creative projects as we embraced materials and techniques to encourage personal creativity.  Red further to find out what the students thought of their experience.
