Digital Photography
I learned about my camera from nothing to manual use. It was a great course enhanced by the tutor's instruction and guidance. I am now much more confident in using my camera…. and interacting with people.
I enjoyed the 'homework' as it meant weekends out and about!
I now have another interest for retirement and I'm inspired to enrol on Beginners Plus digital photography.
I have become more confident with my camera. And I hope the photographs I take at work will now be better."
          
Watercolour
More inspiring than doing it at home on your own. After a long period of ill health. I have learned new techniques in watercolour and we have become friends with the same interest. I have gained more confidence in myself as a person and my art.
I learned many techniques from drawing to watercolour painting. The teaching was through practical demonstration through to individual tuition in a comfortable environment. It was extremely enjoyable and I will undertake more painting both at home and by attending further courses."
