“Really interesting course that introduces lots of mixed media techniques and shows how to work with paint to create abstract pictures. Brian is an excellent teacher who creates a friendly and supportive environment.” [the highlight of the weekend was the] “creative 2 semi-abstract landscapes”.
“Definitely a journey to learn and understand how materials come together to create something. I have a greater understanding of the complexities when using different materials, I had very fixed views about creating images and this course has opened up my imagination to other possibilities.”
