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
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.

Response from Shirley Davis Dew. Art 4 All:Thank you so much for your feed back. it was great to see the way everyone tried out each technique I showed you.
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.
