This is my first course with Art & Soul. Ive learnt a lot so far, Ive learnt that I can do it if I try. The group is very patient and understanding in showing me how to paint and work. I used to get upset as I wasn’t very patient with myself and I didn’t have many friends of my own. Now coming to the group I feel like I’m supported and can express myself on paper.
The first piece I did in the group I want to turn into a calendar to keep for myself. Id like to have something up in my home and say ‘I’ve done that!” At the moment I’m working a portrait of Frida Kahlo using watercolours and oil pastels. Im enjoying working on something and seeing it change each week.
