This seems to be a busy time of year for everybody with so much to do, whether it is planning for the holidays, buying presents or tidying the garden and protecting it from the inevitable frosts, there never seems to be enough time for everything. (Personally I can’t think of a time when there isn’t so much to do, but never mind !)
Sometimes something has to give, and, disappointingly, for some students it is their once-a-week commitment to painting, which is a shame. I understand it is not always easy to devote two hours on a certain day when there is so much else to think about, but I hope they do not abandon it all together. A quick sketch of a favourite object or even a favourite snack, needn’t take long and can bring a bit of fun into the day to take the pressure off the tasks they have set for themselves !
