I had the great pleasure of having Sophie as my tutor. A unique thing about the class is that Sophie focuses on areas like breathing and frame of mind that help you produce art. She makes the distinction between expressionate artistic drawing and more technical drawing, which I found very useful. I was very satisfied with the drawings at the end of the session and feel I had improved a lot of areas that I hadn't previously considered! She also is very accommodating and tailors lesson to your experience.
The session was well organised with plenty of resources and a lovely light airy studio, with a wonderful model.
Sophie was attentive, gently pushing me out of my comfort zone and encouraging me to produce works in unfamiliar media that I was really pleased with.
As an educator myself, I was happy to have my experience broadened.
I hope to work with both Sophie and Sophia in the future.
This was an excellent opportunity to loosen up my technique. We had a number of different poses - some short some long. Sophie was very friendly and encouraging. The model was also very friendly. This created a supportive atmosphere which allowed you to move out of your comfort zone and experiment with technique. The location was also good as it gave very good lighting creating good contrast on the model.
Had a lot of fun and made several pictures which we got to take home. Very proud!
Perhaps a glass of fizz would have helped the mini exhibition at the end. Will keep painting : )
