One student has learnt to paint with her left hand following two operations effecting her ability to hold a brush with her right hand. She has painted regularly over the past year with a little encouragement from me in The Art Studio in Thetford. I wanted to inspire people in this article, to highlight that there is a way of overcoming difficulties. The key is being a fighter mentally, coupled with sheer dogged determination. Let this be an inspirational story to all those out there, whatever your age to battle,  to be focused, to be resilient and determined to succeed through gritted teeth and hard work, it proves to me, it can be done. 🙂 See the pic below…

The Art Studio attracts a wide range of ages from 5-80 plus years, is a friendly atmosphere and good open space to work in that the home often doesn’t allow. Students even have permission to be messy! There are sometimes the unexpected visitors joining in a creative class!

Miracles happen! Lovely to see this lady come back recently to the Drawing Course after recovering from a nasty car accident and many operations on her drawing hand/arm, a real answer to prayer!

Students are encouraged to experiment out of their comfort zone with new medium and techniques. Above is an example of one of mine last week.

Some students book into courses like the Open Studios fortnight where I offer sessions for a day in watercolour or acrylic painting or drawing lessons.

Acrylic painting, first of three, three hour Tiger lessons with student – The Painting Course is a well designed 12 weeks giving students the opportunity to paint alongside Kevin in practical painting challenges, it is a highly recommended course.

On the Painting Course we do a different canvass every lessons and students work alongside me in painting and observing and creating their own masterpiece. It’s great fun and so therapeutic too!
