“I have thoroughly enjoyed the last term of watercolour lessons with Renata Wright. She is a very friendly, approachable teacher, happy to offer advice and guidance to her class. As a beginning student, she immediately made me feel comfortable. Renata chooses different styles of art for us to work on each week, which expands our knowledge and encourages us to try new and different approaches. In particular, at the end of my very first lesson, Renata handed out our picture for the next week, saying that we needed to draw a value sketch prior to drawing on our watercolour paper. I took one look at that picture and felt defeated. I have never been able to draw, and really thought watercolour may not be for me. But I sat down the following day and drew a fabulous dunny – yes, the great Australian dunny! Just completing the drawing gave me so much confidence, and I really felt that my decision to start painting with watercolour was the right one, and that my ability had been validated. I am very much looking forward to next term, as well as the 5 workshops that I am attending between terms. Thank you Renata, for enabling me do something that I really enjoy”.
