It was a great group to work with and a fun weekend of drawing, painting and talking about art and other mysteries of life. We will be running another workshop in June and a more advanced workshop in October, bookings being accepted now. You can see pictures of our first workshop here. We would like to extend a warm welcome all our new students as well as welcome back all our ongoing painters, many of whom exhibited in our end of year show, as well as several external exhibitions last year. As teachers it is incredibly rewarding to see the progress made by our ongoing students, and an honour to be a part of their painting journey. We're looking forward to another fantastic year of painting and drawing with all of our students, exploring more methods and techniques, making some exciting work, talking shop and having fun!
