I've already posted a few photos from this event but will have some more for you later..
It was great to meet some new budding artists. Sometimes I meet someone who has great potential but can't see it. It was like this with one of the artists at the taster event.
'I don't know if I should attend the 6 week course - everyone else's work is better than mine!'
This artist had just completed a cracking wee painting that was just like a Giorgio Morandi - lovely composition and colours. I replied that for me as a tutor it is really important that I see my students not only enjoying themselves but also progressing.
Its not always about trying to create a masterpiece worthy of the louvre. Its about making sure my students are progressing as much as possible from the level they are at when they start the course. So even if you are a complete beginner, advanced or somewhere in between - I will make sure you finish one of my courses knowing a lot more than when you started.
