First painting class of the year, Noosa Queensland, Australia

The first class of the year is always exciting meeting new faces and welcoming back familiar faces.
Our new class
Our class is pretty small with only 6, room for one or two more. Our two newcomers shared their love of painting and creativity as well as their desire to gain confidence and new skills. To start the year I did a questionaire to determine what everyone wanted out of the class and it was good that everyone was keen to  improve their skills to paint coastal scenes in impressionistic and abstract ways. Drawing was considered a desirable skill , so I plan on having  it incorporated into the class on a regular basis.
