Day Four Working with bird drawings and adding into the existing painting. Then display all work produced for a private opening. I have enjoyed painting on the wall I liked meeting and chatting to nice people I also liked being in the fire station I liked learning about painting Richard
My greatest achievements on this workshop were that I can now paint quicker while still making pictures look wonderful.
I feel more respected and treated with dignity. The environment was really good and welcoming. The whole group was united and everyone was helping towards the project which was a really good thing to do. The group was well organised, hard working and most of the artists were relaxed and felt safe and secure, most of them felt at home. The aim of the artist was to achieve the project together. The project was very successful and everyone enjoyed it. The whole project was amazing, looking great, despite that it was done with different artists doing different things from different angles but in the end it worked out. There was nothing the group found difficult with the project, everything was easy going with people helping each other, sharing ideas, working together as a team it really made the project easier. The teachers of the project were very organised, well done everyone. If it was not for the hard working of the staff who organised the project everything would have been impossible, so we give then big credit for working hard. Thank you once more for all your efforts and hard working. Mark, Sarah and Sheila
We are very proud for what we have achieved as a team. This is wonderful and the idea was great and amazing. I am very proud of work I have done. Gaynor
