Paul the host made everyone feel welcome at the Art Experience day today. It didn’t matter whether you were an absolute beginner or not, Paul talked us through step by step how to use water colours & the use of different techniques to enhance our work. If you had knowledge already he adapted to the individual needs to ensure everyone was able to enjoy the day. We were a group of 6 people who did not know each other but due to the relaxed atmosphere we all got along nicely & able to share our works of art & have some fun on the way.
Lunch was provided which was Jacket potato with salad. It was freshly cooked & there was plenty for everyone with seconds if wanted!! There was also a cheesecake for dessert & plenty of hot drinks, biscuits & chocolate cakes on hand.
The setting was in a newly converted studio with good seating arrangements, log fire & lots of props to stimulate ideas for your creations.
It was definitely a unique experience & I would highly recommend it & I will be hoping to return for some more creativity & learning in the near future.
Thank you Paul for a great day.
