Fundamentals of Drawing
I have created many artworks from new perspectives using the right side of my brain. This took time and focus and was difficult as it felt like letting go of things I was so used to mindlessly following.
I have learnt that art is deeply complex and takes complete passion. I have learnt how to break things down into shapes and see them for what they are not what I'm trying to see. I have learnt how to give things texture, how to use shading to my advantage, and how to better see art all around me.
I am ready to let go of my old view of art. I am ready to see that there is a ration to everything and to create it takes passion. I am ready to let go of the idea that only the gifted people can do art
Mary's encouragement, patience, the ability to understand what we see and, more importantly, showing us that there's a lot more to see in everything; makes for a class that you can relax in and enjoy the process of learning how to draw. It's been a fun and engaging year and we are all supportive and encouraging of each other. Can't wait to start again next year.
A grounded egoless teacher who will help you activate your subconscious mind in a fun playful way. Mary has taught me invaluable tips (in just one class) I will be able to add to my creative toolbox. Thank you so much Mary
Honestly, I was not sure I would accomplish much in a day but Mary's technique makes it easy to see the images and transfer them to canvas. Really happy with what I have accomplished in such a short time.
Mary is great at guiding someone through listening to, trusting and finally doing what intuition says. By the end of the class I was oil painting for the first time ever, trusting myself and going with the flow of creating. Great fun!
This is a truly wonderful class to start something which will open you up to your own creativity, lots of learning but simple and fun.
Mary is an amazing teacher, so clear and concise with her teaching that makes the process fun and motivating and wanting to do more.
Mary's talent and expertise is beautifully passed on in a warm and nurturing environment.
I love this workshop, I like seeing what other people paint, Mary is a brilliant art teacher.
