How wonderful it was this week to welcome my first class of beginners to my workshop at The Fold. We started at the beginning, with learning the fundamentals of sketching...trying out all sorts of techniques including pencil, charcoal and pastels. What a lovely bunch of enthusiastic budding artists. We had lots of fun, chatting and drawing and each participant produced what has to be said, a very accomplished still life. This week we will be exploring painting, using all types of media and I hope to be able to report back with some photos of our efforts. On Saturday we also had a very successful mini canvas workshop using acrylics to create mini masterpieces. Again, this was lots of fun. Hopefully more of that to come in the next few weeks. Please feel free to join me for any of my various workshops - check out the workshop page for more details!
