Rosa's first workshop goes down a treat!

Rosa Roberts joined us earlier this year and enjoyed her first workshop at the V&A in London last month. The one day workshop is about experimentation, practising your drawing skills and learning new techniques. 

Rosa is a tutor who is experienced in explaining and breaking down the complexities of line and ton
e. On the day, as well as treating her class to new and innovative techniques in charcoal and other media, Rosa's charismatic personality shone throughout.

Feedback on the workshop has been superb and it seems as though we have found a fantastic tutor in Rosa. Rosa specialises in pastel, watercolour, oil, drawing, acrylics and mixed media, and her brilliant attitude to painting and teaching is very apparent in this quote:

"I like to encourage a spirit of experimentation with materials and have developed and continue to develop techniques that encourage people to connect with drawing and representation in new, more exciting and tactile ways."

This was beautifully reflected by feedback we received of the day by one of our valued clients who wrote:

"When you go on these painting, drawing, whatever trips or workshops you hope that, maybe, you'll pick up the odd tip or two, to learn how to improve on something...You don't expect to learn something completely new, something you've never done, never seen done, never read about. But that's what happened on Saturday...I came away on cloud nine, honest!"

Such a great response from Rosa's first workshop is fantastic and we are looking forward to running many more workshops and holidays with her in the near future!

Rosa will be heading off on two exciting trips in 2013, firstly to Montsant in Spain in May, then to Cinque Terre, Italy in October. Before then though, Rosa is running the second of her two day workshops at the V&A on 16th September 2012 and she still has places available. So come and join our brilliant new tutor on one of these dates.
