Begin Again

May 2022


Even though I went to art college when I left school and completed a foundation year and Two Year Fine Art Diploma, in the years following I didn't feel completely confident about my ability and created artwork rather sporadically. I wanted to get started again, properly, so many years later I went back to basics and attended a beginners class. I felt I learnt more there, was accepted and felt less pressure. I really enjoyed it. It was only for a couple of months but I really felt it kick started my art practice again. I am very grateful for it - grateful to the friendly, approachable, authentic teacher and relaxed atmosphere. I was reminded of this class today by a post, which included a couple of the drawings I did there, came up on my Facebook memories - I stated on the post that I created these two large charcoal drawings in an hour and a half. Not bad :)
