Comments from participants at my last course "Art for the Afraid: A course in Mindful Drawing" at Hamilton House, Bristol:
A very enjoyable, relaxing and peaceful journey to becoming/discovering the artist within, Changing perceptions and gathering skills
A very enjoyable course - my confidence in my drawing skills has grown over the weeks. Looking forward to more courses!
My fear upon finishing the course was that I would still feel just as rubbish (about my ability to draw) as when I started: I can proudly say I have done the best drawing of a sheep and of a hand that I could ever imagine!
Feedback from participants at my last course on "Exploring Colour" at Hamilton House, Bristol:
Great workshop. I really enjoyed learning about art and exploring with a paintbrush again, something I've not done since primary school!
Life doesn't have edges. It's blurry. Exploring colour helps you feel comfortable with this.
I am as a result of the class more relaxed, feeling more in tune with my creativity, and more confident about creating. Brilliant.
