I was able to do this workshop with Shirley and a small a week early and found it to be extremely stimulating, especially the input on dramatic skies (mine are ok but not particularly exciting). Seeing her latest piece of work quite took my breath away and I'm really looking forward to experimenting.

Response from Shirley Davis Dew. Art 4 All:

Thank you so much for your praise Alison. I think your painting will be just as good when you have completed it. Carry on with the good work.
It's allways a pleasure seeing how hard you try and the results you achieve.

I very much enjoyed the workshop. It has given me confidence as it made me realize that everyone has his/her own style and there is no such thing as good or bad. Shirley is good at showing you little techniques and explained how you can use acrylics in different ways (wet/dry etc). She answers all the questions with patience and is a lovely host.

I enrolled my 13 year old granddaughter on this course with Shirley to encourage her to improve and learn. Carys has enjoyed this, her second workshop, and made the comment that the day had gone really quickly, which says it all.

With Shirley's guidance she produced a very nice landscape. Thank you so much Shirley.

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.

I bought a day workshop for my granddaughter Carys as a Christmas present to encourage her with her painting. She thoroughly enjoyed the day and with Shirley’s help and guidance brought home a wonderful piece of work.

Response from Shirley Davis Dew. Art 4 All:

Hello Ann I was so pleased with the way Carys tried everything that I showed her, she was a pleasure to teach. She is obviously going to continue with her art, she is so enthusiastic. I am pleased she wants to come along on the next Landscape workshop in February. I look forward to seeing her again.

I loved the course. Acrylics were a new medium for me and it was interesting to learn new skills and techniques. I had a go at the techniques taught in the class and really enjoyed it. I got home and did a brilliant painting using those techniques but with my oil paints, and I'm absolutely thrilled with the result, so I've learnt skills that also translate into my oil paintings.

Response from Shirley Davis Dew. Art 4 All:

Thanks for your kind words Katie, You were a very capable student. I liked your willingness to try new techniques and to experiment. Keep on pushing the boundaries and getting out of the box.

Thank you Shirley for a fantastic, inspirational acrylic course. I loved it and learned so much about applying paint and achieved so much in a day! This was just what I had hoped for. You gave great demonstrations to start us off followed by lots of time to put what we had learned into practice.
Thank you so much Shirley.

Response from Shirley Davis Dew. Art 4 All:

Hi Judy

It was a pleasure to show everyone what they /you could achieve. I enjoy teaching people who are as enthusiastic and keen to learn as this group were. Thanks for your lovely comments.
I hope to see you again Judy in the future.

Having thoroughly enjoyed a previous workshop with Shirley I was looking forward to this one, and I was not disappointed. It was an excellent combination of learning and fun. Clear demonstrations of techniques, sharing of ideas and information, individualistic responses encouraged, and tea/coffee/biscuits thrown in for good measure! By the end of the day I felt physically tired but creatively energised. Thanks, Shirley.

Shirley is an excellent teacher; very patient and knows her stuff. I really enjoyed this day and was also very pleasantly surprised at what I learned and was able to achieve during the day. Highly recommended.

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.
