As a newbie to drawing I wasn't expecting to achieve too much, but boy was I wrong. A lovely day, good company and an encouraging teacher who shared countless tips and gave one to one attention. The V and A is quite chilly when you're sat for hours so do bring the layers in winter, but it's a great, inspiring venue. I still can't believe how great my drawings look, thank you so much! This is not the end of my drawing journey :)

Even though we were complete beginners and the idea of drawing in a museum was daunting, Stella really made the whole experience extremely fun and informative. We had so much fun that our original anxiety melted away!

Very interesting and engaging course. The long duration allowed me to get focused on the drawing and to develop my skills within the afternoon. I strongly recommend it.
