Shirley's demonstrations are very good, however, I feel she favours long-standing members.

Response from Shirley Davis Dew. Art 4 All:

Hello Lynda ,
Thank you for responding to my request for feedback. I will take on board your comments. I do hope you don't feel neglected, as you have been attending the weekly classes for many months and I consider you a long- standing valued member.

I appreciate some of the class are boisterous and can appear to have more attention.
It is never my intention to favour anyone over any other one.
We have many new people joining at any given time. ( 5 new people joined this term.) This meant I had to help them little more than the others for the first couple of weeks.

As you know I always do a demo's each week aiming to encourage individuals to develop their own style of painting and become confident in expressing their own personality. I aim during the class to have been to visit each person at least twice to advise / guide them in their painting technique. Again thank you for expressing your thoughts. See you on Wednesday.

This was a relaxed yet intense and challenging day. Shirley gave a variety of demonstrations, giving clear explanations and inviting responses at each stage. 'Experimental' was the key word and the results were varied and exciting. I enjoyed going home with all sorts of ideas which I am looking forward to putting into practice.
