Private Art Lessons

For the last 6 months I have been trying to get underway with some private art lessons with Kate Symmans but with all the Covid lockdowns etc it has been difficult to organise. Tomorrow morning I actually start. I am hoping to be able to strengthen my drawing skills so that I can apply those to my textile art. Here is a sketch I did of someone with an oxygen mask suffering from Covid. I am quite excited about this development. I have done lots of on line tutorials and some short courses but mainly of processes for textile. I have never had formal art lessons so this might take me in new directions. My tutor manages a major art shop in Hamilton so I am also hoping to learn more about different mediums. There are so many available now it is often hard to know if I am using the correct ones for my art work
