04 October 2018 • Saturday Drawing Studio

As a novice to drawing, I found this class very comfortable as there were people with varying degrees of drawing skill. John, our instructor, delivered the lesson with professionalism combined with humour that relaxed us. He was also very encouraging and helpful if anyone seemed to struggle. I would recommend this class and am considering enrolling for the 4 week course.
