We had a warm and friendly start to the year with 5 students returning, and 5 new sketchers starting for the first time. Coffee and tea, introductions to each other and we were ready to get cracking. The first week always has so much on. New sketchers were introduced to their sketch kits and and the first sketch was completed within an hour! General sketchers were given some revision and then it was time to sketch the local laneways before heading to The Conservation Hut for practice sketching ellipses, and adding colour off location using our colour blocking task as a prompt. Well done class on your first day of the year!
