We started another 6 weeks of the Art Elements course last week. This course has a really interesting mix of students ranging from in age from retired, to those in their 20s – 30s working in an eclectic mix of professions, from a variety of backgrounds and nationalities – it’s what makes teaching in a city-centre studio so interesting. All students got off to a brilliant star exploring mark-making and getting back in touch with the emotional and physical act that is creative drawing. A brilliant way to leave the stress of the day job behind. I’m really looking forward to see how everyone develops over the coming weeks.
